Diane is now living near her native village of Memramcook which was called la-butte-à-Pétard before the deportation of 1755. Her first book, La butte à Pétard, is an Acadian bestseller.

Tamara Thiébeaux Heikalo is the illustrator of six books for children, including Driftwood Dragons and The Cat from Kosovo. She has been an artist from very early on in her life, creating whimsical, caricatural, and realistic imagery.
