Finally, he challenged her to quit her job and write the book. If she successfully wrote and published the book within a year, she would abandon her previous career once and for all. But if she failed, she would return to her day job.
Fortunately for Mills, she was successful. An avid reader of romantic suspense, she made the genre her target, at least initially. It only took her six months to find a publisher for her first book.
As a Christian author, Mills may surprise her fans when they learn that her goal is to entertain her readers. The author describes herself as a storyteller. She believes that she was born to write. It is one of the most important callings God placed on her heart when he created her.
Her faith influences the stories she tells, which is why sex, cursing, and pointless violence are absent from her books. As far as Mills is concerned, her books create an opportunity for her to evangelize. But she doesn’t want to talk down to her readers, especially the non-Christians.
Mills doesn’t use language or jargon that only Christians can understand. The belief systems she espouses may vary from those of her readers, but she wants them to have fun when they read her books.
This is why she doesn’t want to preach in her stories. Mills takes every opportunity that comes her way to write about God and show that he can overcome the evil that plagues people daily.
But she also creates unpredictable characters that have to go on exciting journeys filled with action, adventure, and suspense. Her novels are filled with messages of hope. She wants to inspire her audience, to show them that they can succeed if they persevere.
DiAnn Mills understands the importance of persevering. Writing has become easier for the author because she has spent so many years honing her craft. But it still has challenges.
Like many of her peers, she occasionally encounters roadblocks where she doesn’t know how to advance her story. This pushes her to review her notes. She has friends she can consult as well, not to mention her husband.
As a pantser, she doesn’t plot the novels she writes. Instead, she figures out the story as she goes.

Mills has won Christy and Carol Awards.
Best DiAnn Mills Books
Besides writing, the author is passionate about coffee and cooking. Mills’ best books include:
Breach of Trust: Paige Rogers’s CIA career ended poorly. A covert mission went wrong, and Paige lost her entire team. That was seven years ago. But the memories are still fresh.
She blames the tragedy on Daniel Keary, their leader. He betrayed them, or so she believes. When she heard the news, Paige was in hiding, living a simple life as a librarian in a small town.
Keary was about to ascend. He wanted to become the governor of her state, and after announcing his candidacy, he was doing everything in his power to locate and silence Paige. He couldn’t have the former CIA operative ruin everything he had worked so hard to build.
Paige had two options. She could run for her life or fight back, punishing Keary for the sins he committed so many years ago.
Attracted to Fire: Meghan Connor was on the right track. In a little while, she would take her place in the secret service. She would spend the rest of her career protecting the president.
But an obstacle stood in her way. Meghan’s superiors had charged her with protecting the vice president’s daughter. But the rebellious girl was the least of Meghan’s worries.
Ash Zinders, the Special Agent in Charge, was gunning for the same promotion Meghan wanted. If that wasn’t bad enough, he had a reputation for being critical.
Meghan was determined to prove herself. But before she could settle things with Ash, the pair learned of an escalating threat. A sophisticated plan was in motion. Someone had breached the security at the secluded West Texas ranch. Meghan had to find the culprit before her dreams crumbled.
