Her styles of writing are diverse, ranging from eclectic/slipstream to inspirational and philosophical.

She is also in the final stages of completing a series of wisdom quotes & insights to be published under the imprint of Mignon Press.
Her most recent publication is a bilingual poetry book (in French–English) which is, in part, a product of her ongoing passion for foreign languages as well as many years of language study and continuing collaboration with native French speakers and teachers of French.
Dianne began writing in her early twenties, and has continued producing work throughout her many and varied fields of employment, university and postgraduate studies, and personal life experiences.
Through simplified character portraits, the poet presents life as an emotional image palette, exemplifying our human traits and idiosyncrasies.
Au moyen de quelques portraits simplifiés, la poétesse nous présente la vie comme une palette d'émotions représentant les traits et particularités de l'humanité.
In this multi-faceted work, urban landscapes are combined with natural world depictions, encrypted in diverse emotional contexts and the machinations of the human mind. Here is a poet who is not afraid to step into the liminal space, moving through spatial time and consciousness in order to redefine an existing reality – or to claim a new assurance through revelation, inspiration and spiritual collaboration.
Injecting subtle ironies and caustic comments on human attitudes and biases, the poet paints from a palette of virtues and vices, depicting consumerism and urban sprawl, self-imprisonment, ambivalence and emotional polarity. This book is at once figurative and literal. It is both the disguised and the unvarnished game of our human existence as well as a contemporary exploration of our global soul.
