The granddaughter of two Italian knights, Diana Belchase grew up dreaming of castles, damsels in distress, and the gallant princes who rescued them -- except sometimes it was the damsels who did the rescuing. 🙂 She is a multi-award winning author who splits her time between Washington, D.C. and Sicily. Diana writes spy novels, short stories, and mainstream fiction, as well as nonfiction and speeches. She often uses her beloved Sicily as a backdrop for her stories. In her spare time, Diana writes about her life in Washington, D.C. on TopSecretWashington.com and interviews authors and artists on her TV show, Book Smart, which can also be seen on her YouTube Channel. Her first book, The Spy in the Mirror, a Golden Heart winner and Daphne du Maurier finalist, is expected to debut next year.
