About the Authors Diane Dawber
Diane Dawber (1946- ) earned a Masters of Education degree from Queen's University and now writes near Kingston.

She has also written anthologies, poetry and books for health-conscious adults -- having survived a disabling illness, she now does public lectures on dealing with pain and fatigue.
