Diane Klutz – Bio …
I am Diane Louise (Mumper) Klutz. I have survived six decades so far and, if my daughter has anything to do with it, plan to go for at least three more. Born and raised in rural Southwestern Pennsylvania, I knew from an early age that I wanted adventure; to experience what the world had to offer. Of course, for a girl living in the sixties that wasn’t easy. Undaunted by my parent’s “No!”, I moved away to attend nursing school; joined the Army Nurse Corps; and then went to Vietnam …
I met my husband (Stephen) in Fort Gordon, Georgia after I returned from Vietnam; he returned two months earlier. His room was right across the hall from mine and from the moment he said “Howdy,” I knew we were doomed to be together. Our first date ended by being caught skinning dipping in the Officer’s Club Pool-by two MPs. Needless to say, it’s been a roller coaster ride since.
We are blessed with two beautiful daughters, one of which is no longer in this realm, and two terrific grand children. Of course I wouldn’t be an author without a dog (two actually) and a cat.
‘You Can’t Sleep Here’
‘You Cant Sleep Here’ is a story of being homeless. It is not a typical homeless tale, however, depicting disheveled men wandering the streets and begging for money. Rather, it concerns the hidden homeless those we see perhaps every day yet never really see.
‘You Cant Sleep Here’ is about mothers who, with their children, abruptly find themselves without a place to stay, a roof over their heads, or a place to sleep. With sheer determination, these women face the unimaginable and, while fighting to survive, discover their inner strengths and the power of friendship.
Diane’s awareness of homelessness and incarcerated men and women began as a volunteer in a small health clinic within a homeless shelter in Wichita Falls, TX and continued in a community based soup kitchen in Denton, TX. As a nurse practitioner, she provided health care to indigent families in addition to caring for male and female inmates within the county jail.
