About Me

Diana Delacruz is the pen name of a current global worker in Coquimbo, Chile. Her debut novel, Destiny at Dolphin Bay, draws on the love/hate experience of her first term of service in Chiloé, Chile’s southern islands. After more than 40 years of South American life and ministry, she knows the settings of her novels well and discovers her plots on the evening news.

Diana grew up in the state of Maine–not far from Bar Harbor–and has never lived more than an hour or two distant from the ocean. She and her Canadian husband recently concluded two decades of mission administration and Bible institute responsibilities in the capital of Santiago and moved back to the Chilean coast to lead a new church planting project. They have three grown daughters and five grandchildren living in the US.

Besides teaching, speaking, and writing in and about Chile, Diana collects tins–as well as stories and all things sea blue!
