#TenThingsYouMayNotKnow about D. Wallace Peach

 

It’s time for another Ten Things post, folks, and today, I’m very happy to have D. Wallace Peach with us. Diana is one of my favorite fantasy writers, and a friend & supporter of authors everywhere, and just wait until you check out this list! 


Ten Things You May Not Know About Me
by D. Wallace Peach

  1. When I was a kid, my parents used to drop my younger brothers and me off in the Vermont woods with a topographical trail map. They’d pick us up four days later, twenty miles away. One time, raccoons got into our food, and all we had to eat for a day was one jar of jelly. We had no idea that this was, um, …unusual.
  2. I grew up with lots of animals, and I didn’t live on a farm. We had an average house in a normal neighborhood. At one time, we owned 8 dogs, 9 cats, 3 geese, 60 chickens, a parakeet, rabbit, 2 gerbils, and a slew of mice.
  3. When I was a teen, I watched the movie “Jaws” and was so freaked-out that I didn’t enter the ocean for 15 years. Woods and mountains, yes. Ocean, no way! Eventually, I decided to face my fears and become a scuba diver. I did two dives with sharks, getting close enough to touch them. Later, I became a master diver, deep diver, and rescue diver. I still love the sea and feel completely comfortable with its creatures.
  4. I was a theater major in college. When I graduated, I began auditioning for the stage. At age 23, I decided to marry and have a family, and I gave up my budding theater career.
  5. I was pregnant with my daughter for 10 months. Those were the days before doctors set limits on how long they’d let a pregnancy go. Finally, enough was enough, and they induced labor. She was completely over-cooked, and her dried-out skin peeled for a month!
  6. All through high school, I worked weekends at a diner, cooking breakfast. Then I’d go rock-climbing in the afternoons. The tallest cliff I scaled (twice) was High Exposure, 250 feet (76m) in the Shawangunk Mountains in New York.
  7. I completed high school in 3 years and college in 3 years.
  8. When I was in college in northern Vermont, I decided to snowshoe up to a cabin in the mountains. During a snowstorm. Alone. The snow was so deep that I lost the trail, and when it started getting dark, I considered making camp beneath a rock overhang. Fortunately, sanity kicked in with the cold, and I started down. I didn’t have a flashlight and hiked out by following my tracks with a candle cupped in my hands.
  9. A few of my books take place on tall ships. In order to make up for my lack of experience and bring some reality to the story, I booked a trip on a tall ship. I learned how to shoot a canon, and while the other passengers drank gallons of rum, I was a pure nerd, trailing after the crewmen with my notebook and asking endless questions.
  10. I’m not afraid of failure. I tend to jump into things without sufficient (or any) planning. For this reason, I do just about everything wrong the first time. But I learn a lot this way and usually am more successful the second (or third) time around. That failed snow-shoeing trip up the mountain? I made it to the cabin the next day.

  1. OMG, Diana! You relive your life in your characters of your books. You were scared by the movie, but other than that, fear was not your vocabulary. If each cat has 9 lives, you multiply that with all the cats you had. It was amazing you found your way to safety through the snowstorm. And you went to the top of the mountain and to the bottom of the sea.

    My husband used to do dirt biking on the mountain ridge with less than 2 feet wide. He stopped because he didn’t want me to worry. He stopped flying helicopter also because summer close calls incidents. He hired a partner when going diving. People said he’s a dare devil. Now I see you have a daring life.

    Amazing 10 things, Diana. Thank you for posting, Marcia!

    • Thanks for the visit, Miriam. My balance isn’t what it used to be, so no high cliffs or narrow trails in my future. But it was fun while it lasted and I don’t have any regrets about my adventures. That one alone in the snow was pretty risky, but I was immortal then, so I wasn’t afraid. Your husband sounds like he enjoys a thrill or two, but I’m glad he takes your worries into account and isn’t being a daredevil anymore. Phew. I’m glad you enjoyed the ten things, my friend. Have a wonderfully exciting day! Hugs.

  2. Wow!! I loved this! What an incredibly brave, fun and exciting person Diana is. It’s no wonder she has such a vibrant brain. Facing your fears by going diving and then taking it further is just so inspirational. Well done! Also, that story about your parents leaving you in the woods for 4 days was so scary.. imagine something happened! How would they know!? Maybe parents of today are just too helicoptery, because it sounds like you had a great time living and exploring in the woods.

    • Facing that shark-fear was big for me, Lenora. It was a game-changer in many ways when I realized that my fear was completely irrational, and it had held me back for 15 years! And I think you’re right that if a parent left their kids alone in the woods these days they’d be arrested for endangerment! But we were raised in the woods, so those four days hiking (or canoeing) on our own was a common occurrence. This was all before cell phones, and we were totally cut off from civilization. But to us, it was just second nature. I’m glad you enjoyed the post about my younger years. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by Marcia’s. Have a wonderful day, my friend.

Your parents sound like intelligent folk 😀 I can totally see how much you must have learned as a child, doing and seeing all that. I can only say by comparison… children of today are deprived! Haha. Hope you have a great weekend 🙂

  3. Thank you so much for this. I adore Diana and her writing and had to smile because with her awesome imagination I’m not surprised at her amazing life.

He was born Holding his head up and with the leg muscles of a football player. ❤️

It’s not as uncommon as I thought. I’m glad you enjoyed the list. I had to dig deep but thought it would be fun to share some of the wildest adventures. My life is much tamer now. Have a wonderful day, my friend. Hugs.

    • I’m one of those who also had a 10-month pregnancy with my daughter. She didn’t end up with football player legs, but there was none of that red, wrinkly look that newborns usually have. Her skin was porcelain and smooth, and she watched everyone around her, seemingly focusing her eyes just fine. It was an experience, but it was well over 40 years ago, and they didn’t induce labor back then if they could avoid it. But that experience pales in comparison to some of the stuff Diana’s done! Whoa!! 😲 Sure am glad she survived all of those adventures so she could be here today to write books with even MORE of them! 😁

  4. Hi Marcia!
    Well, this was fun and i loved hearing these up close and personal stories about Diana. Such fun facts. She’s a fav of all of ours and loved the story of her in the woods for 4 days. Diana, were your parents close at hand?
    I love how you faced your fears of the water after your trauma from jaws. Lot’s of fun facts here.. Thank yiou! 🙏💖

    • I actually have no idea where my parents were, Cindy. I assume they were in a nearby town or camping somewhere. Clearly, we never missed them. Lol. And this was all before cell phones, so there was no expectation of contact until the planned rendezvous. If we hadn’t shown up, I’m sure my dad would have found us in a day or two, but that never happened. We were little mountain people. 🙂 Thanks for dropping by Marcia’s and for the fun comment, my friend. Have a wonderful day.

    • Never, Audrey. To me, to be honest, this all felt ordinary. I can make it sound exciting for a paragraph, but other than that solo snow-shoeing trip where I got lost, I was never in any danger. I was well equipped and well-trained for most of it. My experiences show up a little in my books – that’s close enough. Thanks so much for stopping by. Marcia’s been a wonderful host and I’m glad you enjoyed the ten things!

  5. As Miriam said….OMG!?! Diana Wallace Peach, you are my hero. You’ve done all the things I wish I’d done, well, except for the snowshoe-in-a-blizzard thing. Don’t like snow. And trekking through the bush with only a jar of jam. And the diving with sharks…but totally with you on the tall ships thing. Did you have to wear ear muffs while firing the cannon???

    • You know, I don’t remember wearing ear protection. Hmmm. So I don’t think I did. There was a second ship traveling with us and we shot the cannons at each other (at a long distance), then came about for another pass. It was so ridiculously fun. Besides that, mostly what I remember was how freezing cold it was on deck, and how woozy I felt below decks. Lol. Life is a lot more sedate now, Andrea, but I had fun growing up in the outdoors. Thanks for the visit, my friend. Have a wonderfully adventurous day. 🙂 You still can, you know!

            And you’re right about those adventures. I was about 7 months pregnant when I had a massive row with my husband. Jumped in the car and drove off in a huff, only to run out of petrol about twenty minutes later…at 10 o’clock at night in a industrial kind of zone. This was waaaaay before mobile phones, right?
            So I saw this place al lit up like a christmas tree and went inside to ask if I could use their phone. The only guy there gave me a very strange look but let me use the phone. Only as we were chatting afterwards, waiting for hubby to come to the rescue, that I found out I’d walked into Hell’s Angels hq in Melbourne. I emerged safe and sound after a nice chat about bikes. 🙂

          • One thing I had to learn the hard way (when I fell a year and a half ago and was concussed pretty badly) and that’s NOT to trust my balance. I’m very careful now because … OWWWWWW! And lots of dizzy spells for weeks afterward. So please be careful, Diana. We can still do many of the things we did in our misspent youths, but we should remember our reflexes might be slower, and for some of us, our balance is a bit off. No need to take chances. (There. I’m done lecturing. As you were, my friend! 😂 )

  6. Fascinating, Diana! What adventures! You do realize if your parents were dropping their children off in the woods with a topo map for four days in this day and age, they’d be thrown in jail! How times have changed!

    • I do believe you’re right about that, Noelle, and generally speaking, that would be the appropriate penalty for child endangerment. We have to assume that Diana’s upbringing was such (and the times were such) that they knew their kids would be safe. Still … it’s amazing, isn’t it? And we’re lucky that she not only survived, she thrived and has fodder for books for many years to come! 😁 Thanks so much for stopping by today and taking a moment to comment! 😀

    • That is sooo true, Noelle. Parents with teenagers could get away with it these days, but we weren’t that old. And times have changed. There are more people on the trails, which makes hiking more dangerous, in my opinion. The forest by itself always felt very safe. Thanks from dropping by, my friend. Have a creative and adventurous day. 🙂

    • My dad was an honest-to-god mountain man, Kymber. My first playpen was built out of sticks outside a little cabin high up in the Green Mountains of VT. My family spent months in the wilderness, so even as kids, we were relatively self-sufficient when it came to living in the woods or exploring the VT rivers. I carry a lot of that woodsy knowledge with me, but put me in a city and I’d be completely out of my element! Lol. Thanks so much for the visit and lovely comment, my friend. Have a wonderful day.

I can relate to the hiking 4 days as I was allowed that freedom and used to travel to my grandparents on foot or by bike every school holiday it took me 2 days normally and I never saw a soul and my parents would get a call maybe a week later if my grandmother could get to the farmer’s phone and the animals my kids had snakes, lizards dog, cat horses, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats..you name it…heights I have never done and the water I sailed which was fun as was learning about your experiences, Diana ..Brilliant and exciting read 🙂 x

I loved this, and when I got to #10 it fit is so perfect with what I had read and also what I have gotten to know about her through her posts: “I’m not afraid of failure. I tend to jump into things without sufficient (or any) planning…” and to me this is the best trait to have as you’re a natural explorer 🙂 This is wonderful. Also, I think #1 is a classic ~ there is not a better education in the world, and it helped in making all the other adventures that followed 🙂

  15. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and imagining each incident in detail. I particularly love #10, as it sets the stage for everything else. This also adds a new layer to your books. While you may not have lived every single event from your characters’ lives, you’ve certainly experienced a wider scope of hardship, joy, adventure and tenacity than most. Thanks for sharing these (and, Marcia, for providing the means!).

      • Hi, Marcia. In similar fashion to Diana’s life and times, readers, conference attendees and people I’ve mentored over the years have often suspected, based on many of my personal stories, that I might be a big fat liar. And I don’t mind one bit. It means I’m living a full life, as Diana has and continues to do. But really, I believe each of us has unique and “unbelievable” stories to tell if we so choose. To quote Bill Nye the Science Guy, “Everyone you will ever meet knows something you don’t.”

        Liked by 1 person

        • Oh, that Science Guy! A pretty sharp one, all right! And I agree with you. I have many, many stories I could tell too, especially about my adventures canoeing Florida rivers, and birding across the state. Plus, my adventures on my trips to the North Carolina mountains. That’s why I write about those mountains and my fictional little town of Riverbend Florida. But even I think Diana’s upbringing was extraordinary. Most of my adventures happened after I was grown, but I like to think they aren’t over yet! 😀

    • #5 on the list drew a lot of comments, Fancya, because back in the day, many women carried their babies well over 9 months. (Including me.) But in more recent years (decades ) they no longer let women go that long, thankfully. They have safer ways to get things started these days.

      As for being left in the woods, like that, it kinda blows my mind. That’s another thing I don’t think anyone could easily get away with today, and in most cases, that’s probably a good thing. But for Diana, it was a real learning experience. She can tell you more on the subject, and it’s all very interesting.

      Thanks for stopping by and taking a moment to comment. This is a really fun way to get to know more about our fellow writers, and I’m looking forward to sharing more of these lists in the weeks ahead! 🙂
