Description
"Martini Alley and Other Swashbuckling Adventures of a Certified Klutz" is a never-ending and double-minded story of two soulmates and the perils they encounter in their search for paradise. In the spirit of Erma Bombeck, Diane describes the real-life escapades of the Klutzes, who are not just clumsy people who trip, fall, and drop things but real live certified-by-birth-and-marriage Klutzes. From being nabbed by the military police for skinny-dipping in an Officers Club Pool to wrecking a forty-two-foot trawler on a sandbar in four feet of water, and so much more, Diane weaves the Klutzes' capers into tales that are cautionary while at the same time rolling-on-the-floor laughable. Even as best laid plans go awry, the intrepid Klutzes face each new challenge like the swashbucklers of old—with the wind behind them and with a glass at least half full of spirits.

Diane's affinity for writing stems from a lifetime of reading and is based on her beliefs that each person has a story just waiting to be told and that real life is frequently stranger than fiction.

When she is not writing, she enjoys reading, gardening, and playing shuffleboard with her friends at Wriggley's Pub.
