RedFusion Media™ announces the launch of children’s book writer and illustrator, Diane Adams’, website. Diane Adams is the author of two children’s picture books, Zoom! (Peachtree, illustrated by Kevin Luthardt), and I Can Do It Myself! (Peachtree, illustrated by Nancy Hayashi 2009). She is also the illustrator of A Home For Salty, written by Stephanie Stuve Bodeen.
Diane was born in Long Beach, California and grew up in Los Angeles and San Francisco. She loved to write poetry as a child, and her favorite book was Where The Wild Things Are, by Maurice Sendak. It’s still one of her favorites. Diane has a degree in Spanish from the University of Redlands.
Her work is enjoyed by children, with her work appearing on the 2006 Kansas State Reading Circle Recommended Reading List. Publisher’s Weekly says:“It takes a dinosaur-themed roller coaster to show a kid that he has the right stuff… Newcomer Adams’ story unspools in couplets with plenty of heavy-duty action words (“Lurching, tilting up again/ Jerking, rumbling round the bend”)… it’s a triumph that youngsters won’t mind reliving several times over.”
A popular speaker to school assemblies, classrooms, and conferences, Diane often shares her writing process with the students, giving them a view into her world of duck diapering, dogs that read, and “good” rejection letters. Her presentation is geared for k – 5th graders, although she also speaks at high schools and colleges. School visits include two 45 minute assemblies, two classroom visits, and a book signing. Diane also speaks at conferences, sharing the steps it takes to get published, as well as the ups and downs of being a children’s book writer. This presentation is geared for teachers, librarians and writers.
