DIANE’S NEW BOOK: 88 Guys for Coffee

Publication date June 1, 2017  

My new humorous novel, a kind of fictional memoir, is entitled 88 Guys for Coffee.

Full of laughs, it’s a look at my five-year online-dating saga. It falls into the category of you can’t make this stuff up! The dating stories are true, almost word for word, but I created a whole new character as the protagonist.

It is aimed mainly at women, but some of you guys might like it, too.  😆 


Abandoned – no, dumped from her 7-year marriage, Laura’s self-worth was in tatters. Some people land on their feet, but she landed on her ass on the kitchen floor.

Longing to find her true partner in life, Laura took a deep breath and plunged into online dating. Oh my. What a roller coaster. Only with the aid of modern technology could you line up this many frogs to kiss.

Hilarious and heartbreaking, soul-searching and spiritual, “88 Guys for Coffee” is loosely based on the author’s own 5-year online dating saga. The horror stories are true, bizarre, and laugh-out-loud funny.

Top 1% Goodreads reviewer Dianne Bylo* said, “Should I laugh? Should I cry? Laugh until I cry? Grab a cup of coffee, wear your most comfy clothes and hang out the DO NOT DISTURB sign because this is a tale of the heart and soul… Humorous, heartbreaking, eye-opening and filled with some truly wickedly funny scenes… Read it, laugh with it, roll with it, this is a sparkling gem for sure!”

Eloquent Rascals The Ravenstone Book coverNew novel! The Ravenstone: The Secret of Ninham Mountain

Mark and I wrote our first novel together: The Ravenstone, The Secret of Ninham Mountain. It was more fun than I can describe, to write with my brilliant, articulate, eloquent, creative husband Mark.

It’s a middle grade/young adult mystery fantasy… full of adventure, and some honor and glory!

eBook only $2.99 Also in paperback





Imagine a raven appearing out of thin air and guiding you to an exquisitely carved icon that glows with ancient light and pulses with shamanic power.

This is how the adventure begins for Nadia and Aidan Shaw, 13-year-old twins, who live in idyllic Cold Spring, New York. Armed with the power of the Ravenstone and their own special gifts, they plunge back to the fifth century, where they encounter Native Americans, ancient Celts, warring princes and a shape-shifting raven. Determined to retrieve a now-extinct healing plant, they must depend on their courage, their faith in their friends, and luck… or is it destiny?

If they succeed, what they bring back could change the course of human existence.
