Diane Davies lives in the Neck, right next to the animals making their home there. You’ll find her in one of the Neck’s two houses with her husband, Papa Butch, and right next door to her granddaughter Elsie and grandson Eli, and their mom & dad. She loves her role as Gramma Diane and her entire family enjoys their life on the St. Croix River. Diane Davies is a breast cancer survivor. She taught elementary school for twenty-six years and supervised student teachers at the University of Wisconsin River Falls. Diane is now retired and has become an award winning children’s author. She and her husband, Butch, live near Hastings, Minnesota on the St. Croix River overlooking Wisconsin.
I enjoy working with young readers and writers in K – 5 in both large group presentations or individual classrooms where I tailor my talk to the needs requested by the organizer. I usually read one of my stories, demonstrate how a book is put together and end with Q & A regarding being an author.
