Dianne Allen grew up in Kitchener and has spent much of her life here. She has published fiction and creative non-fiction short stories. She teaches nursing at Conestoga College and holds a MSc degree. She is currently “thinking” her way towards a PhD in nursing education. Dianne’s worldview includes the belief that our stories are endless when we tap into and pay attention to each of the senses we are given. A recent move to the pastoral setting of a farm in the rolling hills of Durham Ontario cannot help but inspire her future stories.
