Guest Book

Thanks for visiting!

I’d love it if you’d say hi here in my “guest book” – just scroll to the comment box at the bottom.  Better still, tell me who your favourite character is, or a fun fact about yourself.  Welcome!

Please note: All comments posted here are public. If you want to contact me privately, please email me.

If you didn’t enjoy my books and/or want to offer criticism, please click here.

Like any good host, I want to make sure all my guests are enjoying themselves. I wouldn’t intentionally put vegetarians and carnivores in the same room at a party, so I hope you’ll understand why I want to keep fans and critics on separate pages. If your criticism ends up on the wrong page, I’ll transfer it to the correct one.  Thanks for your understanding!

  1. I just finished book 17 & just like the 16 before it’s great!!! I so enjoy your writing. Just the right amount of mystery, little romance, what going to happen next & all the character’s are special. Thank you so much for the enjoyment your books give me & others. I could read one right after another one.


    • Thanks, Jodi — your kind words made my day! I have so much fun writing Aydan and the gang, so I love to hear that you enjoy reading them. Encouragement like yours keeps me going when I’m slogging through the tough parts of writing! 🙂


  2. Love love your books. Just finished 17 and have read all of the spy series. Love Aydan and her badass attitude. Especially like she is not worried about her looks. Cannot wait for number 18. Please don’t end the series.


    • Aw, thank you so much! I’m so glad you’re loving the series. It’s always hard to decide when (or whether) to wind down a series — several times I’ve thought, “Okay, this will be the last book.” And then by the time I got to the end of that book, there was more story to tell! 🙂


  3. I read Never say spy, it made me laugh out loud and I also cried, the story keep me wanting to keep reading I was intriqued.It was excellent can’t wait to read the next one.


    • Hi Iris! That’s awesome — I’m so glad you enjoyed Never Say Spy! It’s a huge compliment to me that you got both laughs and tears. That’s what I hope for when I’m writing! Thanks for taking the time to come by and brighten my day, and I hope you enjoy Book 2. 🙂


  4. Just finished your first “Spy” book and I loved it! So I got the 2nd. 🙂 I don’t know if he’s my favorite, but I think Hellhound is great!


    • Hi Melissa! I’m pumped that you liked Hellhound — I have to admit that he’s one of my favourite characters to write (but don’t tell the others). 😉 Thanks coming by and commenting, and I hope you enjoy Book 2!


  5. Hello Ms Henders.I truly enjoyed the four books I have already read. Looking forward to the others. Aydan, Arnie, Kane and Stemp give the perfect balance. Thank you so much. You are my best escape yet! Cindy from Trinidad and Tobago


    • Hi Cindy! How lovely to hear from you in Trinidad and Tobago! As the snowflakes float down here, it’s fun to imagine being in the warmth and sunshine where you are.

      And I’m so glad you’re enjoying the adventures of Aydan and the gang. Being someone’s escape is a huge compliment — thank you! I really appreciate you dropping by to tell me, and I hope you enjoy the rest of the series. 🙂


  6. Hi Diane. I also got your first book for free on Bookbub, read through the night and bought the series in the early hours of the next morning. I’m on book 14, and am now trying to pace myself… but unfortunately I’m not big on delayed gratification🤦🏻‍♀️.
    I enjoy all the characters, but my favorite parts are where John Kane is involved, even when all he is doing is being an anchor- guess I’m a sucker for tall, dark & handsome! Although strangely I also really enjoy Stemp!
    Anyway, from a sunny and warm South Africa thank you for your Spy series, I’m having a blast reading it


    • Hi Nellé! How cool that Aydan and the gang have made it all the way to South Africa! I’m thrilled to hear how you’re gobbling up the series. You’re a binge-reader after my own heart — I’m not big on delayed gratification, either. 😉

      I love writing all the characters, but I have to admit a certain weakness for tall, dark & handsome, too. And Stemp has been great fun to write — peeling back the layers of such an intensely private person is fascinating. I keep wondering what other secrets he’s hiding from everyone… including me.

      I really appreciate you taking the time to drop by and brighten my day with your comments — thank you! 🙂


  7. It all started with a temptation in Kobo’s free books …. And has just wound up with the closing pages of book 16. What a ride! I have never found myself laughing out loud as often as I did whilst reading this series – and it’s been many years since I found myself turning off the lights at 2am, no longer able to keep my eyes open. Truely bingeworthy, Ms Henders! For someone who is barely literate in geek speak (and of an age where the whys and wherefores of computers are a thing of mystery) I was dragged in and tossed around in your data streams and quite happily went back for more. I look forward to reading more of the middle aged bookkeeper… I was absolutely nothing like Aydan when I was bookkeeping at the same age!


    • Wow, it’s so great to hear that you binged on the series! And I’m especially glad you got lots of laughs — I often find myself grinning while I write, hoping my readers will grin, too. I’m especially happy to hear that the ‘techie’ parts of the books were reader-friendly. 🙂 Your note made my day — thank you so much for taking the time to come by and comment!

  8. Hi Diane, I’m on book 8 of your Never Say Spy series and I have to say I am addicted! As a middle aged woman, Aydan is relatable and that is a rare perspective. I am from Canada (Hensall, ON) but my son lives in Kananaskis working at Nakiska winters and we have spent time in that area. Recognizing references to the places around Calgary makes me feel part of the story! If you ski at Nakiska look for Dylan. He also writes in his spare time and would love to be able to talk to someone that writes for a living. Thank you for entertaining me! So far my favourite character – other than Ayden – is Webb. He is such a lovable character.


    • Hi Phyllis! I’m so glad you’re enjoying Aydan and the gang, and that you love Webb. He’s so much fun to write! And it’s nice to “meet” a fellow Canadian, especially one with a connection to the Calgary area. I never did get to ski downhill at Nakiska — we usually went to Sunshine or Lake Louise. Now that we’ve moved to the West Coast, I may not ever ski Nakiska, but who knows? Stranger things have happened.

      It’s very cool that Dylan is a writer! If he’s looking for information and/or inspiration, one of the best resources I’ve found is Janice Hardy’s blog at She has a huge “Fiction University” that gives awesome advice on developing, writing, editing, and selling novels. I wish him great success in his writing career.

      Thanks for dropping by!


  9. Hello Diane,
    I just finished finished your first book “Never say Spy”. I couldn’t stop reading until the end. I can’t wait to read your other ones. You are a very talented writer and you sure know how to keep your readers interest.
