More About the Author

Diana Dempsey traded in an Emmy-winning career in TV news to write fast, fun romantic fiction. Her debut novel, FALLING STAR, was nominated for a RITA award for Best First Book by the members of Romance Writers of America. It centers on the personal and professional travails - and eventual triumphs - of a primetime anchorwoman. TO CATCH THE MOON, a Romantic Times Top Pick, combines a murder mystery with a love triangle. TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN goes behind the glossy veneer of a Napa Valley winery to find forbidden love, intrigue, and betrayal. CHASING VENUS is a romantic suspense about writer Annette Rowell, who discovers that being a best-selling novelist can be a killer ...

Since Diana enjoys the occasional well-executed murder, she's launched a cozy mystery series. MS AMERICA AND THE OFFING ON OAHU introduces beauty queen and budding sleuth Happy Pennington, who must clear her name when her fiercest competitor tumbles dead out of the isolation booth during the pageant finale. Happy continues her adventures in MS AMERICA AND THE VILLAINY IN VEGAS, MS AMERICA AND THE MAYHEM IN MIAMI, and MS AMERICA AND THE WHOOPSIE IN WINONA.

In 2014, Diana teamed up with authors Ciji Ware and Kate Moore to write RING OF TRUTH, an anthology of linked novellas about a magical Claddagh ring, the ancient Irish symbol of friendship, loyalty, and love.

In her dozen years in television news, the former Diana Koricke played every on-air role from network correspondent to local news anchor. She reported for NBC News from New York, Tokyo, and Burbank, and substitute anchored such broadcasts as Sunrise, Today, and NBC Nightly News. In addition, she was a morning anchor for KTTV 11 Fox News in Los Angeles. She started her broadcast career in the anchor chair for Financial News Network.

Born and raised in Buffalo, New York - Go, Bills! - Diana is a graduate of Harvard University and the winner of a Rotary International Foundation Scholarship. She enjoyed stints overseas in Belgium, the U.K., and Japan, and now resides in Los Angeles with her husband and a West Highland White Terrier, not necessarily in that order.

After reading falling star which I thoroughly enjoyed I thought I'd download another one of Diana Dempsey's book and I wasn't disappointed with too close to the sun. It was beautiful from start to finish. Set in Napa Valley based around wine making, a book about family, morals, a romance, it was just pure escapism and I was gutted to have got the end. Really really enjoyed, it was even better than falling star and I look forward to reading more of her books.

A very interesting, well researched and well written book. The story is plausible, the plot well thought-out and the book has a strong internal balance. I love the insight into the personality of each character. Diana captures the reactions of the 'rich spoilt young man' the 'refined lady' the 'unappreciated hard working girl', the 'workoholic dad' and many more. I found the way these people relate absolutely fascinating and learned much about myself reading the book ... as well as learned much about wine making. A compelling read, like all the other books by the same author.

I downloaded this after enjoying fallen star, and another good read. Diana has the ability to write books that are an easy read with unexpected plot twists. Chick lit at it's best. Well researched. I was disappointed to finish the book. Always a good sign!
