Discerning Readers Want to Know About Diane Capri:
Dear Ms. Capri, I love your books! I’ve read them all! I think maybe we’ve met before? Milwaukee maybe? Or Las Vegas? Your face looks familiar and I know writers don’t use their real names. Who are you? I mean, really?
DIANE CAPRI: Who Am I? Really? As Shakespeare said, a rose is a rose. But we writers are the roses and the stinkweeds and all that grows between. We’re the earth, sunlight, water, and fertilizer. Lots of fertilizer. On the page, we observe, report, create and destroy new life, new creatures, human and not, there and here, then or now or in the future.
In short, we make stuff up, seeking to entertain you. Characters, situations, places. And other stuff, too. Like names.
I am a writer. That’s who I am. Really.
Reader: Right, I get that. Already said I love your books. But I meant what’s your name?
DIANE CAPRI: Diane Capri.
Reader: Let’s try this. Where were you born?
DIANE CAPRI: New York City. Grand Hyatt Hotel. At a cocktail party on July 11, 2009, about 8:33 p.m. when a friend suggested we write something together.
Reader: Your writing’s darn good for a three year-old. Is that a true story?
DIANE CAPRI: Absolutely. Hand-to-heart.
Reader: Hmmm. What work did you do before publishing?
DIANE CAPRI: I’ve always been a writer. I’ve also worked as a lawyer, law professor, teacher, consultant, green onion stripper, and for one summer, I filled cones with soft-serve ice cream for tourists who didn’t mind eating amid the aroma of horse manure.
Reader: Horse manure? Green onion stripper? Seriously, is that true?
DIANE CAPRI: Certainly. Lawyers don’t lie. Hand-to-heart.
Reader: Oh, all right. Keep your secrets. You write mystery and suspense and thriller after all. I can live with that. But do I know you?
DIANE CAPRI: Could be. If you don’t, I hope you will.
Reader: Do you know me?
DIANE CAPRI: If I don’t, I’d like to. Who are you really?
Reader: Why should I tell you that if you won’t tell me?
DIANE CAPRI: Because I’ll give you a free e-book if you do.
Reader: I mentioned I love your books, right? Where do I sign up?
