About Diana Wilkinson

Diana graduated from Durham University with a degree in geography but after a short spell in teaching, has spent most of her working life in the business of tennis development. A former Irish International player, tennis has always been a great passion.

Having finally stepped off the tennis court, Diana has become a full-time writer. The inspiration for much of her work has come through coaching tennis to hundreds of ladies over the years and from the intimate confidences shared over coffee. She has met, observed and listened to women trapped in loveless marriages, abusive relationships and in the grip of obsessive love… although she does admit that no one has yet shared a personal murder story!

Her novels tackle the dark side of obsessive relationships. 4 Riverside Close is a psychological thriller set in the claustrophobic confines of a North London cul-de-sac. An online dating site sucks bored residents into a sinister web of seedy manipulation from which there is no escape.

Her second novel is called You Are Mine. When her lover disappears, Julia fears she will never find out what happened. However, ten years later, a night at the cinema reveals her search is over.

Diana currently lives in Hitchin in Hertfordshire with her family.
