Short biography
After writing three award-winning young adult novels, Diane Les Becquets, a faculty member in the MFA program at Southern New Hampshire University, launched her career as a writer of adult fiction with BREAKING WILD, published by Berkley/Penguin Random House. The novel, a page-turning suspense, takes place in the wilds of Northwestern Colorado, an area where Les Becquets lived, backpacked, snowshoed, hunted, bicycled, worked archaeology, and raised three sons, for almost fourteen years. Les Becquets is a native of Nashville, TN where as a child she built forts in the woods behind her home, explored the creek for miles and miles, played sports, and listened to classical guitar and country music. However, she also considers herself a product of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where her father's family lives - where she spent every waking moment outdoors fishing and exploring the UP timber, skipping rocks and daydreaming, riding three-wheelers and then four-wheelers, watching the Chicago Cubs and the Green Bay Packers, and reading and listening to opera with her uncle. She is a volunteer with Back in the Saddle Therapeutic Riding Center in New Hampshire, where she now lives, enjoys nature in all of its aspects, loves her family and friends, pistachio ice cream, folk music, snow quinzees, and has a deep admiration for great books and kind writers, of whom there are many.
