Judyth Piazza chats wtih Diana Estill, Author of Driving on the Wrong Side of the Road
Diana Estill`s writing talents emerged in junior high school, where she served as Senior Love Letter Editor and freelance note writer to several Honor Society members. "I`ve ghost-written my way into the hearts of many eighth-grade boys," she says. "Only now I`m aiming for a slightly more mature audience."
A native Texan, Ms. Estill`s humor articles capture the complexities of life in The Southwest. Among her works are Jalapeno Hazards, a tale that proves you can`t always predict the path of pepper juice, and Green Lawn Obsession, a story about substituting mouthwash for lawn fertilizer. (Thankfully, she claims she hasn`t tried this in reverse.)
Ms. Estill earned a B.B.A. degree in management, which taught her nothing about running a household. A domestic failure, she ascribes to "fantasy thinking" and waits patiently for the Filing Fairy to arrive.
Serious when she needs to be, Diana Estill`s publishing credits include news, profile, education and opinion articles written for The Washington Post, Miami Herald, The Dallas Morning News, PBS and others.
She is a frequent traveler to the Caribbean and an avid snorkeler, though she swears she never flirts with any fish capable of returning her advances.
When she isn`t writing, Diana stays in shape by chasing after her two cats, four grandchildren and only husband.
