Diane M. Dresback

Diane M. Dresback’s passion is for storytelling, both in book and film mediums. After 26 years of human resources and training management in the travel and financial industries, she engaged more of her “creative-side.” Diane has written fiction, non-fiction, and an online course. She’s written, directed and produced several short films winning numerous awards with one screenplay leading to a feature film called Atrophy. Diane received the 2012 Arizona Filmmaker of the Year Award and holds a Masters in Adult Education and a Bachelors in Human Services.

Seventy years young, retired teacher and journalist, Theresa Clavin, jumps at the opportunity to help two high school girls struggling with a journalism writing assignment. She surprises her unsuspecting interviewers with stories of a broken childhood after the devastating death of her mother, and challenges with a resentful, unloving stepmother and uninvolved father. Theresa longs for a “normal life” and believes she’s finally found it as she becomes absorbed in college. But her choices carry consequences, one of which is an unwanted pregnancy. In the late 1950s, options are different for unwed, expectant mothers. Tales of love, loss, and strength provide not only fodder for Theresa’s journalistic students, but also prepares herself for one of the most impactful introductions yet to come. Room for Another is a fictionalized account based on true life events of author Diane M. Dresback’s biological mother.
