Making a career of career awareness
Author Diane Lindsey Reeves started writing books with an emphasis on career awareness, to help kids of all ages figure out what they want to be when they grow up. Over time, she wrote and/or produced dozens of titles with publishers that include Facts On File, Zondervan, Prentice Hall, Sourcebooks, and Films for the Humanities. She also worked on a variety of custom publishing projects with clients that included the National Association of Manufacturers, Associated General Contractors, the U.S. Department of Labor, and the United States Department of Education.
After a while, she took a four-year hiatus to a) fight cancer (she won!), and b) help a dear friend launch a brand new children’s division for an established Washington D.C. publisher. After working with terrific authors as editorial director and writing eight original PEANUTS books, Reeves is back at it with renewed energy and a seemingly insatiable curiosity about what people do at work! This time, she has found a home for her distinct approach to career exploration as an imprint with the esteemed Cherry Lake Publishing. Diane divides her time between Washington, D.C. and Cary, North Carolina, where her favorite thing to do is play with her grandkids—Conrad, Evan, Reid, and Hollis Grace.
