An Artistic Soul

An author of hope and possibility, Diamante Lavendar is leaving a mark in the world expressing herself through creative means. I’m not surprised since lavender is a plant of hope and possibility. Hope to relieve pain and rid stress. As always, I enjoyed this interview, so please give a warm homemade baked bread welcome to Diamante.

Describe yourself in 150 words or less.

I’m a kindhearted, artistic person who’s been through a lot. I’ve experienced deep valleys and high mountains in life….looking to experience more high mountains because they’re a lot of fun! The deep valleys…not so much! I love to write, paint, draw, spend time with loved ones, swim, garden and cook! I also have a day job that takes up a lot of my time!

I am also deeply spiritual and try to be as understanding as I possibly can since I realize we are all works in progress. I’m also deeply grateful for my readers and followers!

If you didn’t decide to become a writer, what else would you like to be when you grow up?

An artist or a cook! Or maybe even a professional landscaper!

Tell us about your published works.

Secrets Book CoverThe Secrets of Yashire is my first published book. It is a YA fantasy story sprinkled with life insights and a good dose of dry/slapstick type humor. It is about a young girl stuck in a fantasy realm after she is involved in a horrible accident.

Breaking The Silence is my life story written in a fictional, Resized BTS Covermemoir type of format. It addresses issues of sexual and psychological abuse and speaks of the importance of faith and hope in healing.

Name one thing on your bucket list.

To be a best selling author!

Do you belong to any critique groups?

I belonged to several critique groups in the past but am not affiliated with any at the present time.

If you were a picture, which room in the house do you want to be in and why?

The living room because I’d like to share in family activities. It would be the most exciting room in the house!

In regards to writing, what are you working on now?

I’m in the editing stages of my fantasy/paranormal/coming of age story entitled Parallel Universe. It takes place in medieval times and is the story of a young man named Damien Rouse as he comes to terms with the fact that he is to be the next seer of his village of Rathclag. Parallel Universe is due to be published this spring.

Is there anything in particular that you refuse to write about, such as sex or mannequins?

I would never write erotica or horror.

Where in the virtual world can people find you and/or meet for a chat?

Google +, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Myspace. I also just started an Instagram account that is taking off quite nicely.

When you’re feeling kinda down, what song do you put on to get you motivated?

I actually listen to Christian rock most of the time. But I also love opera, classical music and classic rock too. It all depends on how bad of a funk I’m in.
