It was nice to interact with Dianna Bellerose who also writes as Diana Bellerose. Here is the link below for the famous blog talk radio.
There was a reason for me to change my name from Diana to Dianna, but unfortunately it was of no use. It is sad to say, but not a lot of people have their best intentions in mind. I hope I will be able to change this and create a world we all deserve to live in. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/diannabellerose
Thank you Jaideep Khanduja for the amazing opportunity to virtually visit India and share my books and life.
Love, Diana Bellerose
