Diane Charles Linford
Diane Charles Linford lives in Michigan with her family and two grumpy cats. She's developed a distinct sense of humor which has just fallen short of getting her into real trouble with the authorities.
I started writing erotic romance on a double-dog-dare, and fell in love with the genre while writing my very first torrid paragraph. I’ve been writing since I was three, submitted my first manuscript to a publisher two years ago, and have a number of scorching hot projects in progress.
My mentor is an angel, my editor a saint. My readers are the most intelligent, insightful, exotic, sexiest people on the planet.
To address a few of the more humorous rumors circulating among readers: No, I am not a man masquerading as a woman. Yes, I am very kinky. No, I am not related to Joan Rivers. No, I am not writing under any other pen names, I am not famous for anything, and I have never held public office. Yes, I was once an Elvira impersonator for a marketing campaign. No, I do not work at your bank, and I did not go to high school with you, I just have a very familiar-looking face. Yes, I am a flat-track rollerderby athlete with the WFTDA, currently skating with the Carolina RollerGirls.
I’m a US Army Desert Storm veteran, a Summa-Cum-Laude graduate of the Russian Program of the Defense Language Institute at the Presidio of Monterey, California. I worked as a Russian Translator/Transcriber during the START Treaty Negotiations under President George Bush, Sr.
I currently work for a major non-profit environmental organization as the Program Director. When I am not writing torrid manuscripts, I write very boring grant applications and environmental professionals’ training manuals.
