Diane K.Peterson, our March speaker, will take a look at the world of Romancelandia – its history and influences. Beginning with the origins of the romance novel, we will examine growth and changes in romancing publishing, highlighting significant milestones in the genre including the Trailblazers list presented at the 2019 RWA conference. Understanding the development of the genre helps us interpret the status of romance writing today.

She works to build bridges among readers, authors and the books they both love.She has devoted her life to the promotion of reading in many forms. For many years she promoted literature to children and adolescents as a school library media specialist. She now works to promote the romance novel industry as an analyst, speaker, reviewer and writer.
