Short biography
Gayle Eden and Eve Asbury are the pen names for Dian Addair, an author whose dreams of writing were put on hold in her twenties while she raised a son and daughter and worked several jobs. Romance novels kept her sane during those busy years during which she moved from the mountains of West Virginia to a suburb of Washington DC where she lived for fifteen years. Finally, she settled in East Tennessee (USA) on three acres surrounded by the North Holston river, where she now writes to her hearts content. Already a grandmother at 44, she calls her life controlled chaos, but it's actually quite normal for a woman who was born 9th in line and was an aunt by the age of five. She sets aside Saturdays for family, cooking and romping with the granddaughters. The rest of the week, when not stealing an hour with her busy husband, she spends at the computer immersing herself in another good plot. She's an author who believes very strongly in writing stories that speak from the heart. She tries not to limit her characters by outline, but starts with a vague idea that generally they will run away with - and sometimes give her fits by defying her attempts to keep them in check. It's not unheard of for her to sit down at the computer and realize ten hours later she's written 200 pages - prolific, yes! She's found it's better to indulge her muse than try to control it. Just like real life, the stories happen, and there's always something new and surprising that makes the experience rewarding. fictionwise
