Reading a great book is an act of transference as the experiences of the characters in the story become apart of our own knowledge and understanding. The characters we come to know, the events that unfold in their lives, the loves they encounter, the griefs they endure, the lessons they learn — all of the treasures of human experience and resiliency of the spirit is ours through the reading of great stories. This week our Self-Publishing Author Spotlight illuminates Outskirts Press author, Diane Dettmann, who writes with wisdom that comes from deep inner strength and resiliency amidst unexpected turns in life.
Diane has published three titles with Outskirts Press and each book conjures feeling, stirs empathy, grows compassion, deepens understanding, and gives the gift of perspective. Learn more about Diane through this week’s Self-Publishing Author Spotlight.
