An avid fan of Zane Grey’s books, she eventually met and married James Edward Kyle. Palmer took a gamble at 45 when she decided to return to college. James inspired her to take the plunge when he decided to pursue computer programming later in life, an undertaking that compelled him to quit his job.

The gamble paid off when Pamer graduated from Piedmont College, Demorest. Despite her age, the author, who majored in history, secured a spot on the Nation Dean’s List, proving to her naysayers that it was never too late to achieve one’s ambitions.

She took things even further by enrolling at California State University. Palmer wanted a master’s degree in history. But writing is still her primary passion. The author began her writing career in journalism, contributing her skills to publications like Tri-County Advertiser.

Palmer, whose real name is Susan Kyle, introduced the ‘Diana Palmer’ pen name in 1979 to sell romance novels. She used the name to write and publish fiction for nearly three decades. Although, she also experimented with other pseudonyms, including variations of her married name.

But ‘Diana Palmer’ is her primary pen name. She uses the moniker to write and publish most of her books. The author has written over a hundred books in the years since she kickstarted her publishing career.

Palmer has garnered a reputation for writing thrilling love stories littered with strong but tender-hearted cowboys. The author blames Zane Grey for her obsession with Western romances.

She developed an obsession with cowboys during her childhood. Palmer continued to nurture that love during her teenage and young adult years by dabbling in the Western romance genre, both as a reader and a writer.

She has visited Texas on numerous occasions and found that its people are as kind as the cowboys she writes about in her stories. The author is unlikely to abandon romance because writing stories set in the genre fills her with joy.

This is why Palmer has written so many books, but each one is captivating. Every time she sits down to write a new story, Palmer feels like a new author writing for the first time. She always gets so caught up in the adventures and romances her characters must undertake that she forgets the time.

This is why Palmer gives her characters room to drive the story. Even though she concocts a basic plot before she proceeds, the author wants the story to take whatever path it chooses. She expects her characters to tell her what to do. Otherwise, the writing process is not quite as enjoyable.

Diana Palmer Awards

Palmer has won Waldenbooks National Sales, Lifetime Achievement (Romantic Times), Career Achievement (Romantic Times), B Dalton National Sales, Affaire de Coeur, and Bookrack National Sales Awards, to mention but a few.

Best Diana Palmer Books

The author has numerous hobbies and interests, including archeology, knitting, astronomy, and gardening. Palmer’s best books include:

Lawless: Judd Dunn was more than happy to place Christabel’s father behind bars. He deserved it. But the development created complications because Judd and Crissy managed a jointly-owned ranch. When Judd married Crissy, it was with the intention of saving their property from bankruptcy. He was determined to fight his desire for her at all costs.

Everything changed when Judd decided that it was time to release his fake wife from their phony marriage. An unexpected enemy entered the picture and tried to use Crissy against Judd.

Wyoming Tough: Mallory Kirk was everything you expect from a Cowboy. So naturally, he couldn’t take Morie Brant seriously. The petite woman had a lot of spirit, but she did not know what it meant to put in a full day’s work. Morie couldn’t possibly pull her weight, or so Mallory thought.

Morie was determined to prove her worth to Mallory. But the pair kept clashing. The more they sparred, the more difficult it became to ignore their attraction for one another.
