Born in Bristol, England, Diane Mitchell worked as a secretary after leaving school until she married. After bringing up two children she ran a successful bed and breakfast business with her husband which was situated at the foot of the Cotswolds.
Even with a hectic life she still found time to explore her passion for writing, having several of her short stories accepted and published by women's magazines. This encouraged her to take the major step of writing her first full length novel and 'Tainted Legacy', based on stories from her family history at the beginning of the 20th century, was born. Diane has now written seven more books and is now working on the sequel to 'Cuckoo in the Nest'.
