Diane Phelps

Diane Phelps has spent over thirty years in corporate and academic marketing before moving to Sedona, Ariz., and launching Red Rock Mountain Press and self-publishing a picture book, "Shade: a Story About a Very Smart Raven," which was followed by "The Un-Common Raven: One Smart Bird," a middle-grade nonfiction title.

With this experience, Phelps wrote a DIY book for authors on self-publishing and marketing, titled "The Author's Concise Guide to Marketing." She presents many school programs, raven talks and self-publishing workshops in her home state. 

Her most recent book, "Dear Hubby of Mine: Home Front Wives in World War II," uses letters her parents exchanged during the war in order to weave a romantic love story brought to life by original family photographs and memories.
