Author Biography

Diane Merrill Wigginton was born in Riverside, California in 1963. Her family moved to San Diego near the end of 1970, where she grew up in the newly developed community of Mira Mesa. Spending portions of her summers each year in Burly, Idaho, with her mother's parents, Florence and Orval Merrill, Diane developed a love of animals and a respect for the land. It was during this time on the farm, where she learned to ride horses, herd cattle, and tame wild kittens that Diane developed a love of storytelling. She dreamed of someday becoming a published author and sharing her stories with the world. Having spent her entire life in California, Diane and her husband made the bold move from Sacramento, California to Kalispell, Montana to retire in February 2018. Now she’s able to pursue her passion for writing books full-time.
“I am thrilled and elated to be doing what I love. Writing and being a grandmother.”

Is love the solution to our problems? Can good intentions build a solid moral compass? A Compromising Position by Diane Merrill Wigginton is a romantic suspense story reflecting the change that love can bring into someone's life. We learn about Catherine Lawrence, a newly appointed campaign manager. Following her grandmother's terminal illness, Catherine is forced to embark on a new journey. She falls in love with Jake Ryan, a surfer from Australia who comes to Florida. Their story is filled with all kinds of sacrifice and prejudice to reach the ultimate goal of living happily ever after. This story shares many experiences influenced by the account of one person in particular. Catherine's role in the story is profoundly exceptional.

It's heartwarming just to read the story of two love birds. Also, there are bits of comedy added to the storyline. Hope and optimism are included to stand for in Catherine's journey. Her character is that of a strong woman. Despite the simplicity of the overall story, Diane Merrill Wigginton has provided us with a unique concept. The use of illustrations came as a surprise to me. The idea behind it is exceptional. A Compromising Position is one of the best romance novels I've read. The natural attraction between Catherine and Jake is enticing. Their chemistry is fantastic. Just like all newly romantic relationships, it started awkwardly, but hope was there to keep the promise.
