Dalziel Laing is the pseudonym or pen name of Dianne Dalziel and Wendy Laing, the co-authors of this exciting and intriguing novel.

Dianne Dalziel:

Dianne Dalziel had a background in both the advertising and print industry. After completing a Bachelor of Arts, with majors in Professional Writing and Communications, she went on to complete an Honours thesis which focused on the symbiotic relationship between the literary magazine and electronic publishing. She then turned her hand to writing. "Mirror, Mirror" was her first book, co-authored with university friend Wendy Laing. She was a Lifetime Alumni Member of Victoria University. Dianne lived north of Sunbury in an idyllic country setting on her property at Macedon with her son Andrew, and a menagerie of cats, a dog, chooks, kangaroos, and her beloved horses. Sadly she died suddenly and unexpectedly on this property in April 2003, and did not see this book published.

Writers Exchange is a Christian publishing house, although we do publish many, many other genres and not all our authors are Christian:)

We have been publishing and selling books since 2000, but in 2017 we decided to sell MOST of our books exclusively from Amazon. A number of our books are also available from other retailers. We have made it very easy for you to find our books from whichever retailer you prefer, either in the "buy" links on each book page, but also by the Menu Item "Our Books by Retailer" which will show you our books at Amazon, Apple, Barnes and Noble and Kobo.

So what is here, that is not available at Amazon and other distributors?
* "Universe" pages that go into a lot more detail about the various fictional universes some of our authors have created,
* Free Short Stories by our authors (which will also be on our blog)
* upcoming: author interviews - which will also be on our blog (where you can get new content/releases emailed directly to you!)
* and other fun things as we think of them :)

We hope you enjoy!
