My name is Diana McCollum, I write, and I am an award-winning painter. I love to make seed bead jewelry which is tedious, and that’s how I meditate. The best time is time spent with my family. The kids are all grown with children of their own.
I reside in northern California in a small town in the foothills of the Sierra Mts.
There was snow at my house on April 12 of this year. That is the latest in the season that it has snowed in the 22 years we’ve lived here.
In June of this year I am retiring from my job as Billing Administrator for a Bridge Building firm in Sacramento. My husband and I are headed north in June, not to Alaska, we are moving to the high desert of Oregon to begin our new ‘Adventure’.
There will be more time for writing, beading, fishing and together time with my husband. We hope to join a Black Powder Gun Club. We used to belong to one down here, but with work, family and commute we didn’t have enough hours in the day for everything.
Adventure is what my writing is all about. Perhaps a novel set in the 1400s with a vampire who is evil or a cursed hero who can’t find love and never ages, who needs the love of a good witch to break the spell.
Then there are the contemporary ones, with psychic characters or objects that have a power attached to them. This is exciting material and I get to live it through my characters.
Clairvoyant, psychic or intuitive I think we all have some of these qualities, do you?
