"I've colored outside the lines from day one and 
hunt for the road less traveled."
— Dianna Love

New York Times Bestseller Dianna Love


Dianna started out life as a photorealistic artist and launched her first business at the age of seventeen out of necessity. She was living on her own and working two jobs so she started painting signs and murals every free minute she could find.  It wasn’t long before she had a following that allowed her to give up three other jobs.  Years later, while painting over a hundred feet in the air, she started making up stories to keep herself entertained during the long days.  That’s when she penned her first novel, which won the prestigious Daphne Du Maurier and Golden Heart® awards prior to being published by a New York house, then won the Rita® Award.  Dianna has written urban fantasy, romantic thrillers, young adult sci-fi/fantasy and a nonfiction (writing reference) books. Her Belador urban fantasy series continues to grow as she reveals more about that world and the characters. When she’s not in her writing cave in Peachtree City, GA (near Atlanta), she’s down on the Gulf coast fishing or off on a motorcycle adventure on her BMW bike. 

Dianna loves to meet readers online and at live events.  Be sure to step up and say hello when you see her out and about.

"... an exciting, pulse pounding thriller...The last half of the book was a nail biter...I love Dianna Love’s writing, her wonderful imagination, and her ability to grab us from the start of each book she writes, and keep us there until the end… Every time."

Barb, The Reading Cafe (Witchlock)

 “Love pens a compelling plot, charismatic characters, vivid imagery and a passionate love story that will leave you breathless… DECEPTIVE TREASURES is the fourth book in the SLYE TEAM BLACK OPS romantic thriller series and is just as compelling as the first three books.”

Billie Jo, Romance Junkies

Dianna’s first book won the prestigious Romance Writers of America’s RITA® award and sold out in three months.

She went on to win more awards and become a USA Today and New York Times bestseller, writing romantic thrillers, urban fantasy and young adult.

QUESTIONS FROM READERS ... be sure to send in yours!

Desandra asked:
 I really enjoyed the Slye series, especially the HAMR guys in Kiss The Enemy. Will we see them again?  

What timing!! The first book in the spinoff HAMR Brotherhood series is coming out October 25, 2022! The first six books will be the HAMR Brotherhood FALCA team, starting with Sam "Partyman" Leclair's story. If you visit the book page for WRECKED: HAMR Brotherhood Black Ops Falca team here, you can read an exerpt. I had no plans on a spinoff while writing the original Slye Team Black Ops romantic thrillers, but I knew the moment Logan and his guys walked on stage in Kiss The Enemy that they had to have their own series. It's funny how things work when writing.Thanks for your question.

Jeremy asked:
I've read many of your books and while I don't expect to write as well as you do, I've started a book and am maybe half finished (hard to tell until I write a full book, lol). I was wondering if you teach writing classes anywhere. 

Congratulations on putting your thoughts down on paper. I will tell you first to keep writing even if it doesn't all connect at times. Just get as much down as yiou can (even the ending) and you'll have a start. I no longer teach writing. I have always loved helping any other writers because I know what it's like to start. I had no plans to be published when I penned my first book. I was just extremely curious and wanted to get that story out of my head. It ended up being published, winning a Rita Award, and launching a new career for me. So don't under estimate your ability. I took workshops and read books on writing. I would love to still be teaching if my writing and life schedule did not demand so much of my time. However, I have a great tip for you. USA Today bestseller Mary Buckham and I met when we both had our first fiction books published and created a way to know if our books were solid or had any holes. We taught a program called Break Into Fiction©, which is now in a book, but Mary is an amazing writing instructer (wonderful writer as well!) who offers multiple ways to learn.  Visit her website - MaryBuckhamonwriting.com - and good luck with your book! 

Linda asked:
Will there be more Gallize shifter stories? Will we learn more about the Guardian's past and Percee?

Yes, there will be more Gallize stories. I have too much fun when I'm in that world. Things happen that surprise me. I never think of myself as someone who writes humor, but when my husband hears me laughing while typing he comes to check on me. I laughed a lot while writing Mating A Grizzly and truly had no idea what a wild ride that romance would be. Percee fascinated me from early on. She's been around (in my head) the whole time, just waiting for the Wild Wolf Mate book. She has more story to tell. The Guardian's story definitely has to be told. Wish I could say more, but I would give spoilers. Thank you for your questions and reading the Gallize books. 

Jenny asked:
How did you go from painting photo-realistic portraits to writing books?

I like to say I fell out of the womb an artist and built my career around painting billboards and large outdoor murals, eventually adding three-dimensional projects and electronic spectaculars to my repertoire. After years of hanging hundreds of feet in the air alone, I’d gotten to the point I could paint and do something else mentally at the same time so I started making up stories to amuse myself.

In 2001, during flights back and forth from Atlanta to Boston where I was working on a big project, I started writing down my ideas, thinking I could give them to a “real” writer. It didn’t take long before I had every bit as much passion for writing as I’d always had for art and could not get enough when it came to learning the craft. Getting published took a while, but I’ve never looked back.
