My name is Diane Mae Robinson. I am an author, artist, art teacher, a tutor at the Creative Writing Institute, volunteer with a missionary group that does work in India, and I work full time at a dental office. I may have a few jobs too many, but they are all important jobs to me.
I have two books published in The Pen Pieyu Adventures series. The books are children’s chapter books in the fantasy/adventure genre.
The first book, Sir Princess Petra, has won two prestigious awards and short-listed for two more awards.
Princess Petra’s unusual birthday request sends the royal court into a frenzy, but when she agrees to undertake a knight’s quest they can’t stop her. Armed with a cake knife and outfitted in the best royal pots and pans, Petra sets off to face a dragon and win her real armor before encountering a bog witch, and an army of the kingdom’s worst enemies. Will Petra’s kindness and acceptance prove to be more valuable than weapons and armor?
My second book in this series, Sir Princess Petra’s Talent is being released Sept. 24, 2013.
Sir Princess Petra has already proven she is a kind and noble knight. This, however, does not please the king and queen—they want her to behave like a princess and forget this silly knight nonsense of hers!
But when the king writes a new rule in the royal rule book that requires her to attend Talent School and acquire a princess talent certificate or suffer the spell of the royal magician, Petra, reluctantly, agrees to go. But who could have guessed what Sir Princess Petra’s Talent would be?
I am currently writing book three. Visit my website: HERE
Before my first book was published, it went through 27 rejections with traditional publishers, one near contract, one contract that failed to produce the book, and finally, nine years later, a contract that did produce the book.
It’s been a long and hard road to publication, but nobody said it would be an easy road. For those of you just testing the waters of publication, keep your chin up and never, ever give up on yourself.

Hi Sue and Erik. Thanks for stopping by. Yes, 27 rejections of book one, and no more need to wonder where Petra gets her stubbornness. Ha.
Great post! (WOW! 27 rejections! That’s a lot! And you kept going! YAY MS. ROBINSON!!!) 😀
Yes, I’m definitely sending Reading Ape a bunch of bananas. Thanks, Reading Ape, for doing a wonderful Book Blast! I appreciate it!
I like how you used the illustration of the magician to break up the blog schedule. I also like the way this information is put together. You did a great job Reading Ape. You deserve a bunch of bananas!
