Diana Stevan writes fiction with heart: love, family and other relationships.
As a former family therapist, the author uses her knowledge of what makes people tick. That, and everyone’s need for love.
HER LATEST BOOK
THE RUBBER FENCE is general fiction. It’s also medical and psychological fiction.
“Beautifully written, complex characters, moving plot…” Author Martha Conway
“A well-written book that holds your attention throughout…” Author Dr. Beverley Whipple
“A shockingly good story…” George Knox
When Dr. Joanna Bereza becomes obsessed with the care of her psychiatric patients, she risks losing not only her career but also the love of her life.
This novel was inspired by Diana Stevan’s work on a psychiatric ward in the early 1970s. It was a time when shock treatment was in vogue. (Surprisingly it still is.) Family therapy was in its infancy; feminism was finding its footing; hippies were everywhere and the Vietnam War was on everyone’s mind.

HER DEBUT NOVEL
A CRY FROM THE DEEP, is a time-slip romantic adventure/mystery .
“It simply has all the elements of a great escape novel.” Author Peggy Morehouse
“Impressive debut thriller set in Ireland, New York, and Provence.” Barb Taub
“Great love story!” Heather Austin
Catherine, an underwater photographer, is up against a notorious salvager in the hunt for one of the lost ships of the Spanish Armada. But before she goes on the dive, she buys an antique ring that puts her on a path that will affect not only her love life but also the journey of the woman who once wore the ring.
Diana Stevan has always been fascinated by parapsychology, the unexplained psychic events we all tend to have, like déjà vu. And of course, the idea of love everlasting. She’s woven these thoughts and ideas into this story.

“A charming sexy slice-of-life in a mid-century setting” Author Lorraine Devon Wilke
“Loved this gem of a book” Maggie Mae
“A delightful escape to the fifties” Author Brenda Perlin
The story ( 44 pages) takes place in a rooming house. Anna, the landlady, finds a blue nightgown in a tenant’s trash and decides to keep it. Little does she know the role it’ll play in awakening her own desires and also those who come in contact with it. Like her own teenage daughter.
Though sexuality was repressed in the 1950s, it was a different story behind closed doors.
This is a good sample of Diana Stevan’s writing and storytelling ability.
