A story I must write…
“This is a story I must write.
I started the manuscript in 2004, following indicators from my life and what I call ‘scene prompters’ as they landed on my doorstep, desk, in my e-mail. The only thing I knew was Clara Rose, who was hiding behind the name Lindsay to avoid being ‘found’ for her work, had been a disciple of Jesus, and I knew fairly nothing about the Essenes until 2008, two years after publication.
Knowing answers? I don’t presume to know. Except I understand now that the Essenes were ever watchful of skills of a child from birth – in their name vibration and star chart – to guide them to their work in life. I know my full name vibration, I know my skills and interests, my predisposition to watch for the miracles.
The storyteller. I know I am born to write and publish this one story, however long, however many novels it may be in the end. I feel – happy.
I am Diane. Essa and Thayne are lovely pennames, but I am Diane.”
