Diane Chamberlain is the international best-selling author of 23 novels. Her books, frequently set in North Carolina, are complex stories about love, compassion and forgiveness with a strong element of mystery and suspense. Diane was born and raised in Plainfield, New Jersey. She also lived for many years in both San Diego and northern Virginia. She visited North Carolina for the first time in 1983 and purchased a vacation cottage in Duck in the late eighties. She continued to be drawn to North Carolina settings for her novels and knew it was time to follow her heart with a permanent move to Raleigh in the summer of 2005. She now splits her time between Raleigh and Topsail Island, the setting for two of her books. Diane received her master’s degree in clinical social work from San Diego State University. Prior to her writing career, she was a medical social worker at Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego and Children’s Hospital in Washington, D.C. She was also a psychotherapist in private practice in Alexandria, Virginia, working primarily with adolescents. Diane’s background in psychology and her work in hospitals have given her a keen interest in understanding the way people tick, as well as the background necessary to create real, living, breathing characters. Diane has three stepdaughters, four grandchildren, and two shelties. She lives with photographer John Pagliuca in North Raleigh where she's at work on her 24th novel, set—of course—in North Carolina.
