Dianne M. Tarpy is an author who is late to the scene of poetry writing, having worked in the corporate telecommunications environment for over 34 years. In this role, she experienced first-hand the life-altering tragedy of 9/11 in New York City and the resulting aftermath and restoration of the network.
She is a community and family-focused leader, resident, and hometown sports fan from Haverhill, Massachusetts, where she has lived her entire life. As a wife, mother of three, and Nana to eight beautiful grandchildren, she has lived long enough to experience life at its best and its worst.
Having achieved two master’s degrees, she is the recipient of a number of awards at the national and local level for her work achieved in giving back to the community in which she lives and works.
A voracious, lifelong reader, writing has always come easy. Little did she know that lying quietly within her was a book waiting to be written - she just needed the right time and mental space to do so. The silver lining of the pandemic is that she feels as though her life’s purpose has been realized. She believes in learning that never ends and knows that one person can – and does – make a difference. As well as knowing that it is never too late to do or be all that you wish for.
