About The Author
Diane Olsen is the prolific writer and award-winning author of her debut book titled; "Ancient Ways: The Roots of Religion," a Bronze Medal Winner awarded by "Christian Illumination Book Awards." Diane's debut release of "Ancient Ways" is thought-provoking and an informative look at the development and evolution of religion throughout time and a well-considered concept - the idea of a connective thread of monotheistic faith throughout history from the birth of human creation.
Her new project is the "Rising Wind" book series, with book one released titled "The Thunder Beings" in 2018. Book two was released in May of 2021 titled "Ice and Bone," and "The Weeping God and The Book of Hope," released June 2021. The series is based and adapted from an original screenplay Diane wrote several years ago; she has written it within a three-part book series for her readers and fans to enjoy. It is an excellent multi-cultural light Christian-themed action-adventure mystery thrill ride like no other book series.
