Thank you so much for visiting my website. Life is indeed a mirror. Let’s gaze into it together and see what we shall behold. Join me in my life journey of attempting to make this world a better place with each book that I publish. Join the characters in my stories as they strive to gain understanding and grow into more accomplished people because of, and sometimes despite their circumstances.
I am very grateful to each and every one of my readers. It is you that makes writing worthwhile for me!
Who is Diamante Lavendar?
I have written three award-winning books, all about things I’ve been through in life. They’ve won a combined 17 awards to date. I write about overcoming hardship and pain in life. I want my readers to know that hope and healing after hardship and loss is possible. I also want them to know that they’re not alone in their pain.
I also create art, and I have been featured in twelve online exhibits to date and have won numerous art awards. My art is spiritual in nature and it explores the human condition. I like to create what I imagine exists in other realms and I enjoy making all types of art such as drawing, painting, mixed media, photography, fractal art and digital art. I am always experimenting with different styles and perspectives.
