Welcome to Dianna Bellerose.
Tell us about yourself, where you’re from/grew up/live now, what you do for fun, if you work at “day job” what do you do that may impact your writing, favorite pet/color/movie /book/actress/actor—you know, all that stuff that makes you interesting!
My name is Dianna Bellerose, I was born and raised in Europe. Most of my childhood, I spend with my grandparents who helped me become the person I am today. They were the most wonderful, loving people I have ever known. Their influence empowered me to be a free spirited and compassionate individual.
Presently, I live and work in Seattle, WA with my husband, daughter, two dogs and a cat. I love spending time with them and cooking wonderful meals. My family is the most important thing in my life. When I need time for myself, I like to draw and practice yoga.
My passion is spiritual studies and I love to make changes in people’s lives for the better because of my life experiences. So far, I had the opportunity to use my knowledge and made a difference for so many. I consider this the best feeling in the world; there is no greater reward for me.
Dogs are my favorite animals because they are loyal, loving and can teach you a lot. This does not mean that I do not like other animals just as much. My dog is everywhere with me, and we share a special bond. His brown eyes melt my soul, and he helps me with the daily obstacles.
Favorite actress is Meg Ryan, I love the movie “You Got Mail” with Tom Hanks, there is something special about this movie. I guess, I am old school movie fan, but I love this positive vibe and the settings.
I am fluent in three languages, I hope to start traveling soon and use them to make changes in the lives of others. My book is based on an abusive relationship, violence and betrayal. It can be a life changing experience for the readers.
If someone has questions about a relationship they are having or feel confused about their partner in life, all the answers are in the book.
When and why did you begin writing?
Several years ago, I had this inspiration inside of me to write my first fiction novel. In the beginning, it was confusing for me because I had no idea what was happening and why I had to write. Eventually, I decided to listen to this voice and start writing
What is your genre?
What’s your process? Seat of pants, well-devised outliner?
My process is simple, I sit and start to write. I do not have a special system because my thoughts start to come one after another. Most of my time is spent revising, and adding additional information to the story.
What other writer inspires you? Your work?
Before my book came to life, I read “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho, it gave me so much information, and it helped a lot throw the process of writing my book. I recommend this book to everyone who feels lost and needs a boost in life.
My work inspired me to help others who need direction and have marital problems.
What is your favorite work by you? And why is it your fav?
Well, I have only one book written so far, and the second book is almost ready—due this summer.
My book can improve and change lives for the better and that is what it makes it special. My hopes are to become favorite to a lot of readers.
Where does your character inspiration come from?
The main character is inspiration for me because she portrays the loving, hard working mother and wife. It shows her free spirit and empowers women. This is a fearless woman who overcomes obstacles and never allows fear to stop her from achieving success in all of her endeavors.
What’s your best/worst experience as a writer?
The best experience was the process of writing the book and the worst was my work with the editor. The problem was a lack of communication and different points of view.
Best/worst writing advice you ever got?
My advice is be real, write when you feel ready, do not force yourself just because you have to write. Consider your work pleasure not a mandatory project. Do not listen to anybody, only yourself and do not change for anyone.
What is your latest work?
As I mentioned above, my second book is almost ready, and it is going to be available this summer. There are no links to it at the moment, but readers can look for it soon.
What do you want your fans to know about you and your work?
What I want them to know is, that they are so special for me, and I want to thank them for their loyalty and support. My books are for them to help overcome problems in life. My fans must know, I am always here for them, and they can email and ask questions.
Tell us something about yourself that your readers don’t already know.
They need to know that I am humble and loving person who just wants to make a change.
