Are you a fan of romance? Then maybe  you
know that, writing as ALEXA SMART and
ANNA GERARD, I penned five critically
acclaimed historical romances published by
Zebra and Pinnacle Books. So far, two of
them are available again as Kindle e-books,
republished under the Diane A.S. Stuckart
name. I'll be reprinting the rest of my vintage
historicals for Kindle very soon.

fantasy short stories

anthologies from DAW
Books.

disposition. Animal rights activists are on the
march, and a cat show contestant stages his
own angry protest when his special breed
