Diana Buckley publishes first novel
Diana Buckly, author of the novel Betsey Anne, will be signing books at COMMON THREADS QUILTING on Saturday, Dec. 11 from 10 a.m. to noon.
“The main character in the book is a seamstress, and there is a red-and-white pinwheel quilt that figures prominently in the story,” Buckley said. “So Common Threads is the first place I wanted to bring the book out.”
Set in rural Michigan during the Civil War, Betsey Anne is a story of love and loss, hardship and joy, and a young woman’s journey to lasting inner peace.
Buckley is employed as the human services director for county government. She also works as a freelance writer, primarily in the political arena, writing correspondence, advertising literature, speeches and website content. Her news, sports and feature articles, and humorous op-ed columns have appeared in a number of local newspapers and magazines.
A talented storyteller, Buckley has recorded two audio volumes, A Family Christmas and The Old Family Toothbrush, both of which enjoyed great regional success. Betsey Anne is Buckley’s first full-length commercial novel.
“This is something I have wanted to do for a very long time, and I am excited to see it finally become real,” said Buckley. “It’s just proof that you should never stop dreaming.”
