I was born in Miami Beach, Florida and moved to California as a teenager. I graduated from Palo Alto High School in the 60's. I married and had a family while living in the San Francisco Bay Area. I graduated from San Jose State University with a B.S. in Business and Psychology. After working in Venture Capital and other business positions I completed a Masters in Counseling at Santa Clara University. I worked for the next twenty years as a Counselor and an Instructor at Mission College in Santa Clara, CA. I have just completed my first book called Al Capone, Stories My Grandmother Told Me. It is currently being published and will be available in October. My second book called Growing Up Capone , which is a Memoir will be coming out in 2020.
Al Capone, Stories My Grandmother Told Me
For the first time , the true stories of Al Capone's private life and final days will be told by his granddaughter, Diane Patricia Capone. It is based on my personal recollections along with the stories my grandmother, Mae, and my father, who was Al Capone's only child told me. It is based also on my mother, Diana Casey Capone's private journals. It is about a remarkable love that never died; about not giving up hope and finally about personal redemption.
