Diane Leigh, otherwise known as fledgling on fire, is a Dream Seed Ambassador, a Wandering Writer, an Alan Whicker-esque Wannabe. British, born and bred in Cheshire, in the north of England, she has since lived in Surrey, Cumbria and France.
An only child, Diane was raised by her dad following the death of her mum when she was 12 years old. Her life fell into darkness, until she found, followed and lived the first dream of her life, at the age 40, to live in France for a year.
Her memoir of this story is Dream Seed Magic: A Journey Beyond My Imagination and is her first book. Now location-independent, home is wherever she is wandering. Her current location often depends on trains, boats and the tide.
"I’d never really thought about writing this story until a friend said, as a passing comment:
“You know, I often tell people about your story, it’s amazing.”
It got me thinking … Really? Is it? Maybe. That’s not for me to decide, but she inspired me to share my experiences and share My Story.”
