Diane Laney Fitzpatrick was a newspaper reporter, editor, stay-at-home mom, Internet content writer, Howard Johnson’s waitress, political campaign worker, and a jack-of-all-trades volunteer before writing her first book, Home Sweet Homes: How Bundt Cakes, Bubble Wrap, and My Accent Helped Me Survive Nine Moves.

Diane writes Just Humor Me, a popular humor blog about growing up in the ’60s, being a teenager in the ’70s, parenting and living all over the country. She also writes It’s Your Move!, a blog about moving and relocating. Her latest project is the Tourist at Home 30-Day Challenge, which encourages people to take advantage of all their city has to offer.
