Diane Olberg is a writer working on a memoir titled A Preacher and His Daughter, about her upbringing in Minnesota and California in the family of a Lutheran mission pastor and his at-first perfect and later drug-dependent and suicidal wife, also the daughter of a Lutheran minister. The memoir will also chronicle Diane’s personal religious evolution, from devout Christian to something else altogether.
Diane is the author of many corporate news releases, newsletters, executive speeches, PowerPoint presentations, annual reports, websites, and even technical manuals. She is a graduate with honors of the University of California, Berkeley, where she studied literature and, to the horror of her advisors, wrote her senior thesis on Mark Twain. She received a master’s degree in English from San Francisco State University and wrote her master’s thesis on Herman Melville. She continues to thank her graduate advisor, Eric Solomon, PhD, for this excellent advice to any writer, which he gave to her as she struggled with completing her master’s thesis: “Just get it done. You are not shaking the literary world.”
Diane lives in Petaluma, California. A Preacher and His Daughter will be her first book.
