The Blessing of an Unexpected Life | 137


On today’s podcast, we are joined by Diana and Kate Cockrell. Diana and Kate are a mother-daughter writing team and they just published a book together! Today, we are going to talk all about the process and they why behind their project! They truly are the example of living an unexpected life and seeing the blessing that comes with it!

Meet the Guests:

Diana Cockrell lives with her husband in a Greenville, South Carolina, home overrun by pets, books, and story ideas. When she’s not teaching history or teaching composition, she’s thinking about history and thinking about writing. When she’s not doing that, she’s studying
history or actually writing (are you sensing a pattern here?), usually with a cat in her lap. Her dearest wish is to travel back in time, experiencing the events and meeting the people she loves. 
Kate Cockrell also lives in Greenville, South Carolina, and spends her days pretending she’s everywhere else. She reads, writes, teaches, and searches for every opportunity to grow imagination, both for herself and anyone else who’ll sit still long enough.
