Author Biography

I love to write. I am the sort of person who can never quite keep my Christmas letters to a reasonable page count. I am crazy about symbolism and get down-right giddy when I come across a book with deeper meaning and hidden messages.

From an early age, I was labeled "the book-worm." I had a voracious appetite for reading which has, to this day, never subsided. I was that kid whose mother would say "put down that book and go play!" -- to which I would plead for "just one more chapter?"

People often ask me where I come up with my ideas. In answer to that question I would say . . . I have plenty of ideas, but not nearly enough time. I am in the process of completing a number of books. My next book, which is due to be released sometime in 2012, is called "The Suit". It is the story of a young man who experiences all of his most defining moments while wearing the same suit.

Reviewed by Lynette Fowlston for Readers' Favorite

"Muted Grey" by Dianna L.Young is a very compelling novella that will leave the readers contemplative. When Marah Edom chose her path in life to become a doctor little did she know the path it would take her down. She had a reoccurring nightmare that she could not shake from her mind. All the drugs in the world could not ease her dream. In each chapter we are introduced to a new character and we see what will eventually become their role in the life of Dr. Marah Edom. While attaining her goals in life, a great job, a BMW, and a beach front home, there was one thing she could not reach and that was peace. It was time she confronted the demons who had haunted her.

I read this small book in an hour. I was so mesmerized I could not put it down. The author introduces a new character in each chapter. At first I found it a bit perplexing. I soon realized there was a thread that would tie them all together. The plot takes a surprising twist about three quarters of the way through. This is a very thought provoking book. The size of this book prevents me from sharing a hint as to what happens in this tale. I do not want to ruin this real treat for other readers. I do know that the subject matter will not leave for a long time after you close the book. This book is a must read.
