Hello, my name is Diane Guscott. I am a middle aged mother of one daughter. I have had a unique upbringing; having been raised by my older sisters. I was always a child with a vivid imagination. I have always enjoyed making up stories. In fact I have been told numerous times by teachers, friends, colleagues, and professors that I should be a writer. So I am now at a point in my life where I am willing to try to become a writer, an author. I am ready to listen to the universe. I have decided that I write, therefore, I am a writer.
I keep two journals and write at least one of them everyday. I also write picture story books. In addition, I have a few novels floating around in my head. When I am not writing I love to read. I enjoy most genres, but love historical fiction, fantasy, and of course, picture books the best.
I am also a bibliophile. I love collecting books! Old books, new books, used books. I love the feel of the paper, the smell of the books. Books, books, and more books, and of course bookshelves.
When not writing, reading, or collecting books, I am a teacher/librarian. I also enjoy gardening and spending time with my daughter, my puppy, and my family.
I wanted to start this blog as a place to share my joy of writing, reading, and books. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it. Please feel free to comment back to my blog (positives only thank you).
