A writer inspired by nature and human nature

If you love fantasy fiction and enjoy descriptive writing at its best, D.W. (Diana Wallace) Peach is an author you won’t want to miss… If you’re like me and fantasy is not an auto-go-to genre for you, this is the perfect time to give it a try!  Diana, it’s wonderful to have you here today to give us a peek into the first book of your new series—Liars and Thieves (Unraveling the Veil series).  Diana’s writing is superlative!

Liars and Thieves (Fantasy Fiction) by D.W. Peach




Behind the Veil, the hordes gather, eager to savage the world. But Kalann il Drakk, First of Chaos, is untroubled by the shimmering wall that holds his beasts at bay. For if he cannot cleanse the land of life, the races will do it for him. All he needs is a spark to light the fire.

Three unlikely allies stand in his way.

A misfit elf plagued by failure—

When Elanalue Windthorn abandons her soldiers to hunt a goblin, she strays into forbidden territory.

A changeling who betrays his home—

Talin Raska is a talented liar, thief, and spy. He makes a fatal mistake—he falls for his mark.

A halfbreed goblin with deadly secrets—

Naj’ar is a loner with a talent he doesn’t understand and cannot control, one that threatens all he holds dear.

When the spark of Chaos ignites, miners go missing. But they won’t be the last to vanish. As the cycles of blame whirl through the Borderland, old animosities flare, accusations break bonds, and war looms.

Three outcasts, thrust into an alliance by fate, by oaths, and the churning gears of calamity, must learn the truth. For they hold the future of their world in their hands.

Q & A

Why are changelings vegetarians?

In this series, changelings have the ability to transform into animals. Talin, one of my main characters, explains at one point that spending time as an animal has given him a greater respect for them. He’s personally experienced their lives: the freedom, the danger, instincts, and emotion. Changelings don’t see themselves as masters over animals, but as part of the vast diversity of creatures. In his own words, “There are consequences to shifting over time. You’ll see. After a while, you start understanding the beauty of animals in a new way, how they have a right to their lives as much as we.”

Author Bio

Wallace Peach started writing later in life after the kids were grown and a move left her with hours to fill. Years of working in business surrendered to a full-time indulgence in the imaginative world of books, and when she started writing, she was instantly hooked. Diana lives in a log cabin amongst the tall evergreens and emerald moss of Oregon’s rainforest with her husband, two dogs, bats, owls, and the occasional family of coyotes.

  2. You are SO good at promoting authors with new books, Bette. I’ve seen Diana featured on other places in social media. It’s reassuring to be numbered among the authors who found writing as a Second Act, as you and I (and Diana) have.

    Best wishes on another successful book launch, Diana!

    • Thank you for the visit and kind comment, Marian. I think I know more Second Act authors than First Act ones. Something about the time and freedom and years of experience under our belts? I just love it, and the connections to all these talented authors is wonderful. Have a great day. Take care and Happy Writing.

  7. A most interesting post. I never gave a thought about what changelings might eat, but can see the respect for animals might enter into the equation. Here’s wishing you the best, Diana! Thank you for hosting Bette!

    • Thanks for stopping by, Jan. I get pretty deep with the world-building. It’s fun even though a lot of it never gets into the story. I don’t get into the culinary preferences of my characters too much, but it’s another area to create conflict. 🙂 Have a great day and Happy Writing!

  11. Hi Bette. I’ve been having WP problems for a few days. Most of the time, it isn’t letting me “like” comments! Horrible timing! So just a note that I’m here and “liking” away. Your comments are wonderful.

  12. Good to see you here Diana for your beautiful book. The changelings are wise to say, “After a while, you start understanding the beauty of animals in a new way, how they have a right to their lives as much as we.” Wouldn’t be wonderful if we could shift to certain forms to understand their world?
    Thank you, Bette for hosting Diana’s new release. She got a lot of attention here. ❤

    It would be fascinating to be able to be a changeling like Talin and see objects from more than one perspective.

  24. How I love the description of a changeling, and a great reason for them to be vegetarians. Diana’s imagination has no bounds, and that’s why I enjoy everyone of her fantasy books. This one is in my Kindle – looking forward to it. And… ahem, is it ready for paperback yet? Thanks for hosting Diana here, Bette.

    • Thanks, Pam. ❤ I do a ton of worldbuilding to create the reality of the world including what the characters eat! LOL. Only a fraction of it ends up in the text, but it's all there in the background. And yes! This one is out in paperback for your guy. 🙂 Thank you so much for your wonderful comment and for stopping by Bette's to read. The tour is winding down and I'll be taking a long nap! Happy Reading. ❤
