|Diana Cosby at a Nov. 5th signing
U.S. Navy Chief Meteorologist/ Oceanographer, Diana Cosby began her last tour in the military by re-enlisting on the back of a camel in Tangier, Africa. With 32 moves and an incredible career, she decided to create characters who reflected the amazing cultures and people she's met over the years. Her years of living in Europe influenced her decision to write in the medieval time frame, hence the MacGruder brothers were born. Diana now lives in Texas and in her spare time volunteers for Habitat For Humanity, Ducks Unlimited, her church, tithes her royalties to the Scottish National Trust, funds a high school writing scholarship, and volunteers for many other charities. Her mission today is:
It's the holidays again, an emotion filled time where it seems that there's not enough time to fit everything in, not to mention dealing with the struggling economy. But, in this time of financial challenges, I ask each of you to please consider one more stop on your crazy To Do list, that of making a donation to a local food bank. Your donation could be a dollar, a can of corn or peaches . . . whatever you can give. Anything you can offer to those with nothing will be a gift they didn't have.
I volunteer for Habitat For Humanity. Something amazing happens when you offer someone a flicker of hope. That even a stranger them hasn't forgotten them, and understands that sometimes life shoves us onto a long and difficult road.
In addition to my personal donation to my local food bank, I decided this year that I'm going to start a Food Bank Challenge. Except, it has grown wonderfully out of hand. Amazingly, once I posted The Food Bank Challenge on my Facebook page and my Facebook fan page, people from across the U.S. began donating to their local food banks. Then, I read donation posts from Canada. Holy cow, the Food Bank Challenge is now international! And you know what, this is truly a blessing. In this venture, we all win. Gifts from the heart do that, they fill you, and remind you there is good in the world, that you can make a positive, profound difference in others' lives.

I wish each of you a wonderful holiday season filled with friends and laughter. May your every dream come true!
