Ghost Writing and/or Editing
Diane has also ghost-written and/or edited several books for other people:
A few years back one of Diane’s favorite clients, Joy Silha, called her “Diana Spice” for the way she spiced up her blogs, articles, and client stories.
As a highly experienced and creative writer and researcher, Diane has ghost-written and/or edited books for published authors in various fields, including nutritional products, medical devices, life coaching, house coaching, and psychotherapy.
Here are a few of the published books on which she has recently worked:
2014: Highly successful voice over actor and blogger, Dave Courvoisier, contacted me to help him collate his five years worth of blogs in the quintessential guide to voice over:
Diane edited, collated, added pictures, formatted, and then coordinated the flow of the book through publishing on Amazon as both paperback and ebook on Kindle.

2013: Wonderful Kirsten Steno is a highly skilled, creative Interior Designer and a certified Martha Beck Life Coach. She helps clients world wide to dissolve limiting thoughts and create lovely, peaceful and soul restoring homes and lives.
Kirsten is from Denmark, and although her English is very good, she needed help presenting her inspirational ideas and client stories in easy-to-read American “voice.” Diane edited (and added “Diana Spice”) her recent self-help book, House-Coach.com Come Home to Yourself, which is available in BoConcept stores around the world and on her website.

2013: Certified life and career coach Denuelle Meyer, asked Diane to edit and “punch up” her book. Featuring the secrets of her powerful 3-Part-Punch System, Plug In Your Kick-Ass Life shows women in practical, simple steps how to get connected, get plugged in, and make changes to their lives.
Diane especially enjoyed writing the stories and anecdotes from Denuelle’s clients’ experience of working with her.

2011: Diane edited and formatted Liz’ powerful self-help book for women over 40 who are fed up with being called cougars, cobras and crones, and who want instead to mash the myths, bash the biases and slam the stereotypes. The book is easy to follow, with energizing insights, ideas and exercises for developing a personal strategy, action plan, leadership profile and hopeful vision for an enduring legacy.
2014: Diane collated, edited, and formatted four ebooks created from the wealth of blogs Liz has written over the years.

2010: This was a fun project. Mark asked Diane to do: take his reams of information, tips, rants, and articles written over the years, and create an easy to read, humorous, yet helpful book. As the owner of nine franchised dealerships, Mark Ragsdale is undeniably an expert on what he calls “shysters of finance, politics, and greed, who have wrecked the industry and abused your tax dollars.” Diane helped him share his vast personal knowledge of the U.S. car industry.
This project was like juggling a giant jigsaw puzzle! But very rewarding to pull it all together.
