Love Inspired Suspense author Diane Burke will be here for an interview on Friday and I am so excited! This will be the first time I've ever held a book in print after seeing the actual manuscript! I didn't critique it, but I had a chance to read the first couple chapters of Whispers in the Dark before Diane won the Daphne and I'm absolutely thrilled with her success.
Diane Burke’s debut novel, Midnight Caller, won several awards before publication, including first place in the Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery and Suspense under the working title Whispers in the Dark.
Three deaths, one connection—the anonymous calls all three women reported in the weeks before they died. Detective Tony Marino wants to close this case before another woman disappears. Especially when he meets a fatherless little boy whose mother is being stalked. Single mom Erin O'Malley tells Tony about her anonymous caller's heavy breathing and unnerving silences. And the feeling of being watched—constantly. Now, after years of thinking he had nothing to offer a wife and child, Tony will do anything to protect the family that feels like his own. Because Erin is next on the killer's list.

Diane lives in Florida, nestled between the excitement of the Daytona Speedway and the quiet, historical St. Augustine. When not writing, she enjoys spending her time with her family and friends, reading, sitting by the ocean and playing with her dogs, Thea and Cocoa.
Diane would love to offer a signed copy of her debut book, Midnight Caller, to one person who comments before 6 p.m. Sunday night. The winner will be announced Monday and contacted for both the name they want the book signed to and their snail mail address so Diane can mail the book. If you want your name in the draw, please remember to leave your email address with (dot) and (at) so the web monkeys don't get you. :)
Diane is very excited about her debut novel and would love to hear from her readers. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
