A PROLIFIC author has published her third book in a year – and shows no signs of slowing down.

Diane Major, who has officially launched her latest work, Enmitus: The Transformation, is already planning her fourth and fifth books,

Her book is a 262-page sci-fi fantasy described as “a story of danger, love, hate, deceit and revenge”.

The former civil servant’s other titles, Children of Fury, published last December, and I Am Nine, which came out earlier this year, are in the fantasy genre.

Grandmother Diane, 59, from Newbottle, said she came to writing late, but is making up for lost time.

“I’ve been writing for about three years now,” she said. “I wanted to start earlier, but life gets in the way.

“When I came up for retirement and with my daughters grown up, I eventually found the time.”

Diane’s fourth book, as yet untitled, is to be a ghost story she hopes to publish before Christmas.

She also plans a fifth book, a follow-up to Enmitus, to be called Enmitus: The Children, which she also hopes to have on sale for the festive period.

“I have written a sequel in draft form and I hope to publish a ghost story before Christmas,” she said.

“A proof reader in America has the ghost story and an artist named LJ Bus has kindly designed the cover for it.

“The best parts of being a author are when the idea in your mind goes on to paper and the first time you actually hold a copy of your book in your hand.”

Diane also takes part in a host of other activities.

As well as becoming a published author, she also works as a fundraiser for the Houghton and District Fitness and Youth Boxing Club.

Enmitus: The Transformation, along with Children of Fury and I Am Nine, are available as Kindle books. It is on sale in paperback at Amazon and most online book stores.
