She has written 5 children’s books, several self-help books, and offers Stepping into Fierceness workshops (see her website at http://www.drdiannagrayer.com). Dianna’s passion is to create materials to help others move through the obstacles resulting from negative voices that block experience and growth toward being free and expressing that freedom. When Dianna is not creating she is seeing clients, admiring nature, playing basketball, laughing, playing games with friends, eating good food, praying, being thankful, spending time with the love of her life, watching movies, and going to the beach. Dianna can be reached at [email protected].
