Let me introduce myself… My name is Diane Russell. When I was a kid, reading was the one safe place in my world. You either get that or you don’t. I had always wanted to write a novel. I had always liked thrillers and historical fiction. I decided to try my hand at writing a novel. My big break came at a writing conference where I had made an appointment with yet another editor. He saw a sample of my writing. He read five pages and asked me to send him a proposal. My goal is to make you a better novelist. To sell you exactly the right teaching product for your needs.
