Diana Cosby

I’m happy to welcome award-winning historical romance author Diana Cosby to the Jaunty Quills for two reasons.  The first is that she writes great books, and the second is that she’s involved in a very interesting and worthwhile charitable cause.  She’s here to tell us about her books and this very cool project.

You had a distinguished career in the Navy and travelled all over the world. What made you pick Scotland as the setting for your novels?

Hi Vanessa, my sincere thanks for hosting me today.  After writing a viking trilogy, I watched Braveheart, and was intrigued by Scotland’s fight for freedom, so I decided to research and write in this era.

What’s the basis for your bestselling MacGruder series?

The tie in for the best-selling MacGruder brother’s series is the halved stones in the grandmother’s chamber, which they believes hold magic.  I’ve had a blast figuring out new and fun ways for the heroine to ‘leave’ the grandmother’s chamber with the matching half of the respective hero’s gemstone. :)

What can you tell us about your new book?

His Seduction high resolution

His Seduction is Griffin’s story, who is an English lord ‘supposedly’ loyal to King Edward I, but is secretly working for the Scottish rebels known as Wulfe.  Griffin has appeared throughout the series, and I was thrilled to write his story.  He’s known for his quick thinking, skill, and always being in control, so I knew I had to toss him out of his comfort zone – enter Rois. :)  A woman who loves her father and would do anything to protect him, when she believes Griffin is a threat to her father’s life, she risks it all in a brazen confrontation with Griffin, and so the story begins.  For a fun excerpt:

You’re involved in a great project with Habitat for Humanity? Can you give us some info on that?

My sincere thanks for asking.  For several years I’ve volunteered for Habitat For Humanity.  What a fabulous cause and, best, you work alongside potential home owners in helping make their dream of owning a home come true.  Also, as the community comes together to help build the home, the family is blessed by a sincere welcome from their neighbors.

One of my dreams is to sponsor the build of an entire Habitat For Humanity home; romance readers and Habitat For Humanity are both amazing, so I thought, why not pair the two?  Hence, Diana Cosby’s Romance Readers Build A Habitat For Humanity Home was born.

How it works:

As readers send contributions to Habitat for Humanity of Grayson County, the bookshelf will fill with every donation. [http://graysonhabitat.org/]  The goal is to fund an entire home – $55,000.  Send your donation via PayPal using the Donate link in the menu bar or donate funds the old-fashioned way—a check works just fine!

Habitat for Humanity of Grayson County
901 N. Grand Avenue
P.O. Box 2725
Sherman, TX 75091

*Total as of today:  $2115.

Thanks for sharing with us your passion about this wonderful project, Diana!

What are some of your favorite charities or volunteer causes?  One person who comments will win a copy of Diana’s His Captive, from her excellent MacGruder series, and also a copy of my first book, Mastering The Marquess.

    What a wonderful charity, Diana. There’s nothing like having your own home and Habitat makes it possible for people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to own. Kudos to you, m’dear.

    I adore Scottish romance, so your MacGruders sound great to me! Love the idea that your hero is something of a double agent.

    1. It’s such a great cause, isn’t it, Mia! Diana also does a food bank drive in the fall – she’s a true inspiration!

        ~Vanessa, my sincere thanks for allowing me to visit Jaunty Quills. I love working with Habitat For Humanity, helping the Food Bank, and other causes. Each of us can make such a difference in each other’s life. If anything I do helps awareness for these charities, that’s what it’s about. Have a super day, and I wish you every success!

    I loved Braveheart too but I’m definitely not talented enough to write any book no matter how inspiring the movie was. I wish tho :p

    How awesome of you; I’m ashamed that I don’t contribute much to society but my bent is towards animal charities – the RSPCA or WWF.

    1. Sounds to me like you’re contributing, Linda. Those are both awesome charities!

      Linda Said: I loved Braveheart too but I’m definitely not talented enough to write any book no matter how inspiring the movie was. I wish tho :p

      How awesome of you; I’m ashamed that I don’t contribute much to society but my bent is towards animal charities – the RSPCA or WWF.

      ~My sincere thanks for helping the RSPCA and WWF. There are so many animals out there that need our help. My two cats, Bad & Brat, are rescue cats. Love them, and I wish that when people are thinking about a new pet, they consider adopting. Take care, enjoy the rest of your summer, and I wish you the best!

  9. Molly R. Moody says:

    Since this is a Texas project I will try and contribute but it won’t be before next month.
    My favorite charitable cause is one done by my church called Neighbors Helping Neighbors. Every Thursday from 9am until 12 noon there’s we have a short church service, hand out lunch, then the people can get toiletries, bus tickets, clothes, and occasionally some groceries. I participate both as a Neighbor and as a volunteer, I work in the clothing section and have been lucky enough to obtain some very nice clothing from the donations. I will continue to help out as long as I can. I’m taking some girls school uniform bottoms with me as a donation on Thursday morning.

    1. Bless you, Molly. That’s a wonderful way to help your local community.

I’m always impressed with the generosity of romance writers in particular whether it’s with the community, other writers or their readers. Thanks for being such a wonderful ambassador for our romance community. My family supports the charities that my father supported when he was alive with annual donations in his honor.

  15. Eileen Dandashi says:

    There is a project which is local that I particularly believe is important — human trafficking. You don’t think that it is happening here in the U.S., but it is. People, young girls and women are manipulated to do things that they wouldn’t ordinarily do just to survive. Then they get sucked into an environment that is very hard to get out of. We don’t have to go abroad to find the cruelty that women and girls sometimes endure. It is found right here at home. :sad: I am happy to see that you take your time and money to help a worthwhile cause.

      Laurie G Said: The Children’s Miracle Network and the Wounded Warriors Project are two of my favorite charities.

      ~Hi Laurie, than you so much for stopping by. Both are fabulous charities. One of my goals is that once funds are raised to build the Romance Readers Habitat For Humanity House, I want to focus on raising funds to build a Wounded Warrior Project home.

      My oldest son was very active with Habitat For Humanities while he was a college student at UF.

      ~Thank you for sharing, and please thank your son for volunteering. Each time you volunteer to work on a HFH home, in addition to the future home owners, you meet the most amazing people. Please take care, and I wish you the best!
      Slaìnte!
