Wanda Dionne, Author
Early in my first attempts at writing fiction, a wise teacher informed me that all writers seem to gravitate to one particular subject in most of their stories. She pointed out that my focus always seems to be victims. I was surprised and intrigued by that enlightenment, but now years later, I realize she was right.
In both my work for young adults and middle graders, and in my adult suspense fiction, my main characters are always in the throes of a serious problem. In all cases, they are victims.
But they do not remain victims for long.
I want my books to entertain first. In my historical fiction, I yearn to foster a love for the wonderful heritage we possess in The United States of America. Whether writing for young people or adults, I believe that if my readers gain insight about the strength that lies within themselves, I will have done my job as an author; to entertain, to inspire, and to dissolve any notions that individuals have to accept destructive circumstances in their lives. We all can overcome. With faith and hard work, we will.
