ABOUT  Diane lawton

Diane's fiction series takes her experiences as a Private Chef/Caterer, World Wanderer/ Food critic, via the sex-crazed portals of catering college to the mansions and yachts of the super-rich.


In The Kitchen Wars, 16-year-old Layla is demoted from London deb and parental Princess and kicked out of school. With no qualifications except mouthing obscenities, she is forced to consider a future working with her hands. Her pompous lack of application to the strict rules of catering, and her frequent kitchen disasters often put her studentlife in jeopardy.

Her untalent for orgasmic tucker for the super-rich could either make her the Queen of finger-licking comfort food or unemployable.  She snipes her way through her adventures with a bag of swear words and a bad attitude.


In The Millionaire Years, after a raucous game with a tub of marshmallows in the board room, she bagged a wealthy eccentric. He wanted her to ditch her kitchen world and travel luxuriously with him for his various businesses. She had other ideas. Bianca, her rival was furious and had the time and money to get her revenge.

In A Spanish Feast, Layla clashes with loan-shark billionaire and his troubled family, at his super mansion in Malaga.  His Thai bride, a teen on probation, and a moody mother ensure her life will be filled with trouble. Marco, from her college years, reappears in her life, and together they fight each other and their way through the underworld of Malaga's filthy rich.


My books charter the dangers, antics, and shenanigans of working in pub kitchens, food and relationship disasters, the over-privileged, the food snobs, and the almost criminal, on a Titanic scale.
