With a degree in art, combined with a love for storytelling, Diana Sharples has won numerous awards for both her art and her writing. She writes clean, contemporary young adult fiction. Her first novel, Running Lean, was published in 2013 by Harper Collins. In 2015, her publishing was temporarily derailed by a battle against cancer, but she's back in 2018 with five new books, including the long-awaited sequel to Running Lean.
Diana's writing is inspired by the people and landscape of the south, especially North Carolina and Georgia. She is a wife and mom, a follower of Jesus Christ, a lover of many pets, and an avid motorcycle rider. Her happy place is the teal and burgundy she-shed that she finished and decorated by herself to become her office and art studio. And one of her greatest joys in life is watching her daughter-a recent college graduate--dance on stage.
