Featuring Diane Burton, author

I’m a Michigan author who loves science fiction romance, romantic suspense, and cozy mysteries. I love Star Wars, Star Trek, and most sci-fi movies plus romantic comedies. That’s why my books contain humor along with suspense and/or a mystery.

What is your primary or favorite genre to write? – Sci-fi romance

Do you have other genres you write for? – Romantic suspense and mysteries

Diane Burton One Red ShoeWhich project is your favorite so far?  Why?One Red Shoe. It was a fun book to write, even though it took over 10 years to get it published; now I have the rights back and am self-publishing it.

How long have you been writing? – About 25 years

Where is your favorite place to write? What kind of atmosphere do you need? Quiet, music, coffee, wine? Any tricks to get in the zone? – Favorite place is my reclining sofa, laptop on my knees. Since my best time to write is in the morning, I need coffee; water for the rest of the day. I need quiet. Music is okay if it has no words—too distracting. To get into the zone, I reread the last couple of pages I wrote the day before, then I plunge in.

What genres do you prefer to read? – Romantic suspense and cozy mysteries (with humor); science fiction romance; military suspense.

What’s your favorite book or movie?Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier (book and movie)

What do you do for fun when you’re not writing? – Watch movies or binge-watch TV shows on Netflix.

  1. I need quiet to write, too. I’ve tried using my headphones to block out the TV that hubby has going all day, but I’m going to have to “move” into my sewing room. Maybe I can squeeze a desk in under all my piles of fabric…
