Diane De Keyzer

Diane De Keyzer (1958) developed a fascination with history and the spoken word from an early age. This led to university studies of Dutch, English and history. Dividing her time between teaching and free-lance journalism, De Keyzer began to research the true "upstairs-downstairs" relationship between house servants and their employers. She compiled their stories into her first book 'Madame est servie'. Published in 1995, the book became a best-seller. She continued to explore this neglected area of social history with two more successful books.
