Diane Cummings is a California girl, a UCLA alum, and is currently sweating in Atlanta, Georgia, with the world’s smallest Persian cat. Diane has worked as a reporter and news director. Deciding that truth was too much stranger than fiction, she turned in her microphone and press pass and set about applying her passion for writing and editing to the world of literature. Diane has edited or ghostwritten more than fifty titles – and now she wants her name on the cover. The Vatican Chronicle Trilogy has encompassed six years of research, writing, and polishing and she hopes you enjoy Book 1 – The Mystery of Julia Episcopa as much as she has enjoyed writing it.
