Welcome to my website. I'm Diane Gustafson, author of Mary Christmas: short stories spanning two centuries, Dakota Rose, and I'll Bee There: short stories and personal essays.

I'm a retired college librarian and professor of research skills. My hobbies are travel, reading, and writing historical fiction. I have climbed Ayers Rock in Australia, walked the streets of Pompeii, watched for he Loch Ness Monster, and honeymooned in a convent in Rome. My husband and I live in a San Diego suburb with our poodle, Ace.
