Fantasy, adventure, comedy. Wholesome stories for the whole family.
Answer one of the Questions:
1.      When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

I love story telling. I often wrote poetry when I was younger and it was an expression of my feelings that I didn’t know how to translate any other way. For years I kept the pen silent as I raise my family, and pursued my career as an artist. But one rainy day, after looking at all my paintings tucked away in my studio, I thought how pleasant it would be to start writing again. So I did.

I realized I wanted to write a novel when I saw my grandsons who were struggling with coming of age, needing something wholesome to read. The Ian’s Realm Saga emerged about a boy and his struggle against a humongous dragon. I even went to my grandsons for advice about the story!

Give an about the Author Blurb,
I have a passion for a good wholesome stories, and for the young adult fantasy genres.  I enjoy books that ignite imaginations, strengthen friendships, spur courage and applaud honor. Though my novels target young adults, they are enjoyed by all ages.

I was born in Ohio and raised in southern CA. I attended Northern AZ University and later continued my education in the Pacific Northwest. I’m an oil painter, book illustrator, screenwriter and filmmaker. I write under the names of D. L. Gardner and Dianne Lynn Gardner.
