Susan Spaeth Kyle, aka Diana Palmer, is a former newspaper reporter, with sixteen years experience on both daily and weekly newspapers. She began selling romance novels in 1979 and now writes as Diana Palmer for three New York publishing houses: Mira Books (mainstream romances), Silhouette Books (contemporary series romances), and Fawcett Books (historical romances).

Dalton national sales awards, two Bookrak national sales awards, a Lifetime Achievement Award for series storytelling from Romantic Times, several Affaire de Coeur awards, and two regional RWA awards. In 1998, a Japanese Harlequin reader poll gave her Silhouette Desire novel, The Patient Nurse, its favorite book of the year award.

She is listed in numerous publications, including Contemporary Authors by Gale Research, Inc., Twentieth Century Romance and Historical Writers by St. James Press, The Writers Directory by St. James Press, the International Who's Who of Authors and Writers by Meirose Press, Ltd., and Love's Leading Ladies by Kathryn Falk.

Dannis has two daughters, Amanda Belle Hofstetter, a high school senior planning a career as a physician, and Maggie, who is in grammar school.

Susan herself went back to college as a day student at the age of 45, inspired by her husband James, who quit a blue-collar manufacturing job to return to school and get his diploma in computer programming. He retired from his own computer business in 1998 and now pursues skeet shooting medals in local, state, national and international competition.
