Author Diane M. Haynes is today’s very special guest. Her YA Fantasy novel, Rift Healer, is a delightful and sometimes frightening romp through an Enchanted Forest.  Rift Healer was a YA finalist in the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and getting to know Diane these past months has been loads of fun. She is another one of the fabulous authors from Crescent Moon Press who was so very kind to help me as I embarked on my own publishing journey.

About Diane M. Haynes

Diane Haynes grew up drawing, painting and sculpting. Writing was relegated to the occasional short story or reports written while working with disabled adults. Although she’s written at least a dozen short stories over the years, most have been relegated to notebooks in a drawer.
She wrote Rift Healer between serving customers at her New Age shop during the months of April, May and June, 2009 and spent the next 18 months editing. Crescent Moon Press, the first publisher she submitted the book to, bought it.
Diane lives in Central MA. where she and her husband care for their Special Needs friend, Richard and two rescued Basset Hounds, Boris and Ruby, whose sad pasts do nothing to diminish their spirit or their willingness to be naughty.
