Diane Chandler Book and Novel

Diane Chandler - Author


Diane Chandler was born and bred in Derby, England. After graduating in Modern Languages, she worked at the European Commission in Brussels for several years. There, she managed European social regeneration programmes in coal and steel regions, and then overseas aid programmes in Ukraine just after the fall of communism. Ukraine soon worked its way into her heart, and she travelled there extensively. Back in London, when Diane married and her daughter was born, she was able to pursue her passion for writing in those few hours she could snatch, and she chose Ukraine as a setting. The Road to Donetsk is her first novel. Her second, Moondance, about a career woman going through the trials of IVF, will be published in November.
