Author Diane Finney.

Diane Finney loves being a member of the CCWC!!!  I am a two time survivor of two different kinds of breast cancer.  Friends were impressed with my positive attitude while undergoing treatment, various surgeries and recovery.  They encouraged me to share my experience and optimism with others who may be facing health challenges.  This self-help upbeat book ‘To Know Sweet You Must Taste Sour’ is the result of a desire to help others deal with adversity in their lives.

Diane has won the Pro/Am short story writing contest at the Malice Domestic Mystery conference three times. Recently her 5 Minute Play, ‘COPYCAT’ was selected to be performed in a 5 Minute Play Festival at the Orlando Shakespeare Center.


Diane’s 10 Minute Play, ’38 Minutes’ is one of six finalists in the Acorn Theater’s second annual Spectacular Tournament of Playwrights.  ’38 Minutes’ will be performed November 10, 2018 at the Acorn Theater in Three Oaks, Michigan.

Diane has been married to husband Chris for over 35 years and loves to spend time with her three sons, two daughter-in-laws and one grandchild.  When she is not writing or creating art, Diane loves to garden, play tennis and study/enjoy nature.
