About the author

Dianne Beck

Dianne Beck has spent the majority of her career teaching students ranging from Kindergarten through adult. No matter what age, her biggest goal is to encourage her students to be their own unique selves, to have confidence in who they are, and to follow their passions. 

Dianne’s debut young adult novel Sticks and Stones was inspired by her years of teaching, where she saw so many students struggle with varying issues, and also experienced how an understanding ear and relevant literature could make a significant impact on their lives. She hopes young people as well as adults can find faith and strength, like her main character Emily did, even when things seem to be falling apart. 

Dianne is motivated daily by her faith in God, her husband, and her four adult children. When she’s not writing or teaching, she can be found reading, sipping coffee, browsing a bookstore, or pursuing a part-time faith and fitness ministry.
