About the Author

Diana Ward

Diana Ward was born in the UK and raised in many different countries with her 3 sisters, Mum and Dad and dogs! This was because her Father was in the Royal Air Force and they would move countries every 3 years. She attended the University of London and became a teacher, specializing in teaching children with Specific Learning Difficulties. Reading was always a huge part of these children's lives. She would often read stories onto CD's or cassette tapes to enable them to follow stories when they were at home. When she had her two children, she continued her own Mother's tradition of reading made up bedtime stories, nearly always about animals! Diana has recently started studying for her Masters degree in Education. At the same time she decided to put her own story telling experiences onto paper. What further inspired her, was her son adopting a dog, Marlee, from the Humane Society in the Cayman Islands, where she now lives.
