About Author

Diane Merrill Wigginton

Diane Merrill Wigginton was born in Riverside, California in 1963. Her family moved to San Diego near the end of 1970, where she grew up in the newly developed community of Mira Mesa. She would spend portions of her summers each year in Burly, Idaho with her mother’s parents, Florence and Orval Merrill. There she developed a love of animals and a respect for the land. It was during this time on the farm riding horses, herding cattle and taming the wild kittens born between the haystacks that Diane also developed a love of storytelling. She dreamed that one day she would become a published author and would be able to tell her stories to the world. In February 2018, she and her husband made the move from Northern California to Kalispell Montana to retire. Now she is able to pursue her passion of writing books fulltime. “I am thrilled and elated to be doing what I love.”
