Diane Bixler is an ESE Specialist and author residing in Flagler County, Florida. She graduated from the University of Central Florida in 1996 with her Bachelor’s degree in Exceptional Student Education and spent her first nine years in education working with juvenile delinquents. She has worked the last ten years in Flagler County, coordinating transition activities for students with disabilities involving the school, outside agencies, families, and students.
Although published in local newspapers and literature collections when she was younger, she abandoned creative writing to build her career in education. Her daily work and volunteering positions has afforded her the opportunity to write professionally, including grants, newspaper & magazine articles, and chapter bylaws for various non-profit organizations. After a fifteen-year hiatus, she has recently rekindled her passion for creative writing, publishing her first completed manuscript, Murder in D Minor, in December of 2013. Melancholy Jack, published in October of 2014, is the first in the Acts of Justice Series. Book two of the series, And So He Plays His Part, scheduled for release in the fall of 2015. She is also working on a collection of short dark stories, tentatively titled Dark Moments.
