Diane loves computers and has since she was a small child playing with the keyboard on her father’s lap. She began formatting books five years ago when a friend of hers who is a self-published author asked for help in formatting her first book. Diane loved doing it and decided to learn how. She took some online workshops and contacted Kindle, Nook, and Smashwords to find out their requirements. She came on board as Black Opal’s formatter, a year ago, and has completely changed the way we format our books. When she isn’t working, Diane loves to read, sew, and of course, play on her computer.
