About the Author

Diane ViDSC_0012rginia is the author of two books she is currently seeking publication for:

The Kiss of Peace: An Intimate Exploration into Song of Solomon has been written to restore the biblical view of Song of Solomon as an allegory of the Groom Jesus Christ’s divine love for His bride, the church and to counter the non-biblical view that it is about sex. In The Kiss of Peace, the reader participates in vignette dialogue. She recognizes that the romance her Groom invites her to experience is representative of  His divine love–a love so rich it is indescribable outside of allegorical rhetoric. Prophetic metaphors and symbolic language of Song of Solomon are explained, such as her Groom’s’ pierced, beryl-set hands, and other Messianic references. The reader discovers the depth of her Romancer’s love, the completeness of His peace, and the typology of His name as Beloved Solomon. She also realizes the vignette is the bride’s story of completeness in her Groom.

Genre: Non-Fiction Romance

Tunnel Vision: Real Life Encounters of the Supernatural is a fictional book with non-fictional testimonies. In the story line, Sam, a landscaper has two near-death encounters and asks Naomi, a homemaker, about life after death. Before she is able to respond, Sam goes missing. Naomi writes Tunnel Vision in the hopes that Sam will find the book, and consequentially Jesus’ love for him. Naomi records God-encounters of all types. Some are of the fires of hell, while others are of the glory of heaven. Some are near-death encounters, while others are visions, dreams, or other God-communications.
