I "met" Dianne last year through WriteOnCon, when she let me read the book she was writing so that she could get a YA's take on it.
I loved (and still do love) her book, Deception Peak. Since WriteOnCon she has finished her book, as well as the next two books in the trilogy, and has signed with Hydra Publications. The first book will be coming out this September.
If you had to describe your book to me in three sentences or less, what would you say?
I think there's a little bit of Ian in all of us. I know I feel like him in some ways, and I'm sure others who read the story do too. Sometimes it takes getting tossed into the ocean in order to start swimming, and that's basically what happens to young Ian. All through the series he's growing up, maturing, making mistakes, and suffering the consequences of them, and then learning from them and becoming a better person.Is Ian purely fiction, or is he based off of someone you know?
