About the Author:


Lane Diamond

Thrillers, Psychological Suspense, Short Stories across Many Genres

“I write; therefore I am.”

Lane Diamond is the pen name for David Lane. He grew up in Algonquin, Illinois, where he graduated from Harry D. Jacobs High School in 1978. After a short college stint, he served in the U.S. Air Force at Ramstein AB, Germany, 1980-1982, and at Lowry AFB, Denver, CO, 1982-1983. For more, please visit his website and blog at www.LaneDiamond.com.

AUTHOR, EDITOR, PUBLISHER: He writes fiction, long and short. His writings cross over many genres and focus on diverse subjects, ranging from the mysteries of the human mind, with its fragile psychological and emotional states, to the everyday joy and anguish of life on Earth. He’s also a writing coach, the editor of over 170 published books, and CEO and Managing Publisher/Editor at Evolved Publishing LLC.

He’s been an avid reader his entire life, and started writing at the age of 12. He loves a good story, of course, a compelling plot and satisfying conclusion; yet as a reader, he’s always been drawn to great characters. The characters bring him back to an author time and time again. This shows in his writing, where he attempts to create authentic, complex, real characters you can come to love, and in whose company you feel at home. Or maybe you’ll despise a character and want to stick a fork in his eye. Hey, bad guys are fun too!

He and his wife Maria currently live in Transylvania, though they visit his old stomping grounds in Las Vegas as often as they can. Someday, perhaps, they’ll settle down in sunny Bali or Belize, or somewhere else they can go to the beach year-round.
