PEREGRINE ISLAND is the recipient of the following awards and honors:
- Winner of National Indie Excellence Award for “Regional Fiction: Northeast”
- “2017 Distinguished Favorite” in Literary Fiction category by Independent Press Awards

- National Indie Excellence Award finalist for “Fiction—General”
- 2017 Bronze Award for US Northeast Fiction from Independent Publisher (IPPY) Book Awards
DIANE B. SAXTON was a journalist with Vanity Fair, Holiday Magazine, Huffington Post and Greenwich Review, and covered everything from torture victims to psychics, animal rights activists, exotic travel, and movie producers. A new chapter opened up for her after interviewing Amnesty International US founder Hannah Grunwald. Alarmed that the stories of incredible and influential lives such as Grunwald’s could be lost as the Greatest Generation passes, Saxton began capturing their histories and complied them into a 1,000 page biographical collection, which became the inspiration for her next novel. She brings the same gift for storytelling with illuminating subtext to her debut novelPEREGRINE ISLAND. Saxton divides her time between New York City and the Berkshires, where she lives with her husband, doges and horses.
