My name is Diane Ouida Wilkinson Wright. I was born in a small town in Iowa called Nashua. My father was a section foreman for the Illinois Central Railroad, and my mother, a housewife. I had no brothers or sisters. Because of my father’s career choice, we moved around within the state and I graduated from Iowa Falls High School with a diploma in business. I attended the American Institute of Business, Des Moines, Iowa where I graduated, and then married an Iowa State University graduate. We moved to the Washington, DC area where I gave birth to two boys by the name of Aaron and Eric. I am currently divorced and living as a single person in Springfield, Virginia with my four-year old cat, Zoe. Not long ago, I discovered the honor of being a relative to the world-famous poet, T.S. Elliot, and I began writing poetry. It has been well received, and I have been published. I currently finished writing a Christian novel called “The Mysterious Wooded Glen” for which I am very excited because the topic of my book is centered on how God works to fulfill the destiny of our lives, and the story’s central focus is something very dear to me when I was a child and is known throughout the world.

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
