Discussing life and work with Diane Merrill Wigginton
Diane Merrill Wigginton was born in 1963, in Riverside, California and moved to San Diego when she was eight years old. She enjoyed spending her summers in Burley, Idaho, with her mother’s parents, Florence and Orval Merrill. It was during this time on the farm, riding horses, herding cattle and taming wild kittens, born between the haystacks every year, that Diane developed a love of storytelling and dreamed that one day she would tell her stories to others.
