About Me

By profession, I’m a technical writer, computer geek, and ex-interior designer.  I’m good at two out of three of these things.  I had the sense to quit the one I sucked at.

To deal with my mid-life crisis, I also write adventure novels featuring a middle-aged female protagonist, Aydan Kelly.  And I kickbox.

This seemed more productive than indulging in more typical mid-life crisis activities like getting a divorce, buying a Harley Crossbones, and cruising across the country picking up men in sleazy bars.  Especially since it’s winter most months of the year here.

It’s much more comfortable to sit at my computer.  And hell, Harleys are expensive.  Come to think of it, so are beer and gasoline.

Oh, and I still love my husband.  There’s that.  Guess I’ll stick with the writing.

And, for the record, no, I’m not actually Aydan Kelly.

  1. A roller coaster of a plot and even when you get to the end there is still one question unanswered because the end is never when you think it is. Great read

  2. I will be taking a look around soon,
    and adding a few bits and pieces as
    i go I shouldn’t wonder :)

    Have a lovely rest of evening and a superb 4th of July :)

  9. Man, and all I do is post Music! And some fiery articles about our dying breed here in Mi. Thoroughbred Horse Racing. But since I think your sense of humor and mine are about as insane we could probably be millionaires writing comedy scripts. Some of my horse blogs with our tribe of horsemen & women here make for good subject matters. I’m not going through mid life crisis though, I’m in full blown perimenopause madness. Hide all the knives.

    BTW it was a Horse’s Ghost in that old barn of yours. LOL

    I’ll be reading the rest later.

    • Ha! I knew there had to be an explanation! Though… I’m not sure it explains the turds…

      Thanks for visiting – it was great to “meet” you! I’m looking forward to lots more fabulous music on your blog.

  10. You are a very accomplished person. It’s only your midlife point and you got this far? That is fantastic. I can’t wait to reading more about your adventures and whatever story comes your way. Maybe even a story of opening up your own speed shop :) wouldn’t it be cool if it somehow became the Mecca for women bike riders? That would be so cool!

    Let me test how good my Harley knowledge is. The picture on top of your webpage, is that the HD Softail Nighttrain?

    • Oh, good guess. Actually, it’s a 2010 Crossbones (the pipes aren’t staggered quite as much as the Night Train).

      • ooooh, thats the one with the darker “heritage” look? Softtail family is one area of the company I wish I worked in. All the years I’ve been with them, I never had that opportunity :(
        Touring and softail bikes are my favorite motorcycles, by far.

  13. Hi Diane,
    Thanks for checking out my book. I will be checking yours out as well. I belong to an on-line writing website where I critique work in order to get others to critique mine. I’m currently reading 25 unpublished novels there, so it may be a while before I get to yours…but I will. The sample I read here looks very interesting…just the sort of book I like.
    Thanks so much.
    ~Ann

    • Thanks, Ann! I know how you feel – my to-read pile is a constant temptation, but I’m trying to resist until I finish writing my latest novel. Soon. Very soon… :-)

  15. Hi Diane. Love your direct “about me page” your story definitely resinates with me – not the picking up men in sleazy bars bit, I will add. lol. My mid-life crisis has been happening for the past 5 years. I started MMA a couple of years ago, bought a motorbike and travelled. Now I have decided to start a new writing career instead of my doing my old boring job as a web developer. I am finding it far more satisfying. good luck with your writing and your new life.
