The enthusiasm she has for teaching and helping others is so strong that she has published four books. Her expertise has led to numerous medical and academic articles and she is currently working on a political suspense thriller, The Ethical Hacker ~ Acidemia. The royalties from her Excellence academia series are being donated to the Santa Rosa Junior College Foundation.
Her current book is The Adventures of Rosy Posy Papillion: Friendship. Rosy Posy is an adorable Papillion breed K-9 who is looking for friends in her first story. On her journey, she meets different animals who are looking for friends too. But when Rosy Posy finds herself in trouble her new friends pull together and show what the true meaning of friendship is all about.
Another exciting project is the children’s book series “Medicine Child’s Play – The Sensitive Brain.” It is the first book of a series that explains serious mental health issues in a simple and easy way for kids to understand, with illustrations to help in the process.
Diana spends her time in the beautiful backdrop of Sonoma County, California. She gets her inspiration from her love of teaching and being part of something that’s bigger than ourselves. She is donating 100% of her royalties from The Adventures of Rosy Posy to Pap Haven Rescue, the same organization the real Rosy Posy came from. Diana and Rosy Posy live in their forever home discussing storylines for all the upcoming books in her series.
Q AND A:
Q: The adventures of Rosy Posy: Friendship is your first children’s
book. What was your inspiration for wanting to write a children’s series?
A: The real Rosy Posy! I am a foster mom for Pap Haven Rescue and Rosy Posy came up for adoption. About one month after she arrived, she escaped into my field. I found her safe visiting with the pony, ram, and goats! Rosy Posy is strong, curious, and has courage. We need a tool to teach each half generation of children values in a compelling, fun, and bright way. So, the inspiration of the twelve values series was born. There is a Rosy Posy Club website where children can follow a treasure hunt and earn a Rosy Posy Bookmark.https://rosyposy.club/
Q: You’re donating 100% of your royalties from the book, what made you decide to give your earnings from the series to Pap Haven Rescue? Why does their mission resonate with you?
A: They are all volunteers who follow their passion and bliss. They are individuals living across the United States who have been drawn together for the sole purpose of preserving and protecting pure breed and non-pure breed Papillion’s in need. There is something wonderful and enduring about serving something bigger than ourselves. It is a “feel good” feeling to know that by buying a book we are supporting a cause.
Q: Do you have any other endeavors on the horizon?
A: Yes, there is the series, Medicine Child’s Play. The first one is Medicine Child’s Play ~ The Sensitive Brain. It explains depression, anxiety, psychosis, and bipolar disorder in easy language with bright illustrations. It is for all ages who would like an understanding of these conditions.
Connecting medicines to stories allow us to understand what is really happening. It allows us to learn, to remember, to better accept our self, others, and the situations around us. In addition, we have the ability to create win-win situations by giving whatever we are dealing with what it really needs. We can shape and respond to our world, which makes life a lot easier, more pleasing, and more fun.
Q: Tell us about what adventure is next for Rosy Posy?
A: The next one is written and is The Adventures of Rosy Posy Papillion ~ Acceptance. Rosy Posy and friends learn about acceptance while searching for a missing autistic neighbor named Toby. Where did he go? Is he alive? Will he be safe? This is an adventure that teaches the art of believing. Courage and fun also come from the new Rosy Posy Song of Acceptance.
