About Diane Arrelle (Dina Leacock)

Diane Arrelle bioWriting under the name Diane Arrelle, Dina Leacock has had almost 200 short stories published and two books. Her book, “Just A Drop In The Cup”, a collection of short- short stories is still available. She currently has stories in State of Horror: New Jersey, Sha’Daa Pawns, Contrary Cats, and Infective Ink.

Dina lives on the edge of the Pine Barrens (home to the Jersey Devil) in Southern New Jersey with her husband, one of her two children, and of course her obligatory writer’s cat. She is proud to be one of the founding members as well as the second president of the writers’ organization formerly known as The Garden State Horror Writers and she is also a past president of the Philadelphia Writers’ Conference.

Growing up extremely rural and listening to nightly horror tales from her older siblings, Dina naturally turned to horror writing since she became afraid of just about everything.

To support her writing habit over the decade, Dina held a wide variety of jobs including teaching, driving a school bus, waitressing, being a mystery shopper, writing for newspapers and for the last 15 years being a Senior Citizen Center Director.

Although she went out looking several times in her younger days, she has never actually seen the Jersey Devil and really doesn’t want too.
