My new author photo

This was taken today, September 2, Labor Day weekend, 2017.
I was asleep, when my friend, Ben Loeterman, took this photo.
I NEVER take naps. Okay, I nap when I am sick in bed with fever and chills. But never on the beach. Until today.
Perhaps this a breakthrough.
Or maybe it was just the perfect storm of sunshine, cool breeze, being among friends, savoring the closing days of summer, and embracing my mother earth.

    Dear Ms. Diamant,
    I just finished your beautifully written, enjoyable novel “The Red Tent”. It was so imaginative and thought provoking I kept wondering what inspired you to write the story. I have never asked this question of any author before, but this time it was a compulsion.

      Hi Beverly:
      I think you’ll find an answer to this question on The Red Tent page in this website. Click the “reading group guide”

      So glad you enjoyed the book.
