Witty, profound and a bit cheeky, Seven Lives: A Diva’s Story is a journey through seven stages of life marked by seven nicknames: Rare Orchid: a survivor, Tough Cookie: a performer, Ginger: an academy girl, Princess: a wife, Gypsy: a free-spirited single woman, Diva: a wealthy entrepreneur, Collector: an art connoisseur.
Over the years, I discover being a Diva is not limited to being a show off, self-important, pretentious, or even obnoxious. I’m certainly not an opera singer, the definition of the word Diva in Webster’s dictionary. I define Diva as a person who is strong, self-aware, and free of society’s boxes.
DIANE MORRISON has published and taught thirty graduate courses in the last twenty-one years. “Seven Lives: A Diva’s Story” is the author’s debut memoir. She is the founder of Diane Morrison Consulting and is a speaker, professor, life coach, and online gallery owner. An expert on the Enneagram, a personality study, she types herself as a positive, adventurous, risk-taker who has survived many difficult experiences in her lifetime. Diane and her husband Alex, both avid art collectors, live in a 100-year-old house in Colorado.

“Diane’s debut novel is a rich portrayal of her life’s journey from early childhood to present day. From the very beginning her life was littered with difficulties imposed on her by dysfunctional family members. The artwork of her life circumstances could have easily painted her as a victim. Instead, she chose to be the victor. Rather than succumb to her circumstances, she bravely hurdled each roadblock coming out on top. Her resolve to be successful carried her through. Her writing style draws you into her personal journey. This honest account of her life required a level of vulnerability which creates an intimacy with her reader. The drama of her life both entertains and moves you. There were times I was laughing out loud at her comical predicaments. Still others were poignant and deeply touching. This book was an enjoyable and entertaining read. It is sprinkled throughout with descriptive gems that draw you into each period of her journey. It’s a wonderful account of her life swept up into words and crafted into a memorable story.”

“I’m loving your book Diane! I downloaded the Amazon Kindle. It just spoke to me. You’re just an incredible writer, so good!”
“Enjoyed, and a pleasure indeed. But more so, because of your openness and vulnerability, reading it has allowed me to get to know you, as you, vs Alex’s relationship, and invited me to look further into my inner spaces.”
“Your post about the book made me think about sneaking those Newport cigarettes in the attic. So proud of my big sis!”
“What is a “Diva”? In her well-written and entertaining memoir, Diane Morrison truly redefines the term “Diva”. Heart wrenching and humorous, Seven Lives: A Diva’s Story profiles the author’s journey from a childhood of betrayal to a fiercely independent and successful entrepreneur.”
