After her Tulsa upbringing and with a psychology degree from Vassar College, Diane Furtney worked a year in Israel (1967), then took an assortment of jobs, sometimes in clinical psychology, in several U.S. cities. Besides nonfiction ghostwriting, she has authored two prize-winning poetry chapbooks (DESTINATION ROOMS and IT WAS A GAME) and two comic mystery novels (MURDER AT THE MLA and MURDER IN THE NEW AGE, pseudonym D.J.H.
