About us

Hello! My name is Deana Lorndale. I graduated from Seattle University College Arts and Science. When I was in college, I served as one of the editors for the college paper. There, I developed my love for getting involved in editorial job. After graduation, I started my editorial career in a small magazine company in San Francisco, California. That gave me a motivation on creating my own independent on-line newspaper. After I got married, we decided to move to Palm Springs and made my dream into realization. So here it is, enjoy all the information shared in this on-line newspaper The Desert Valley Star that covers local news for the Coachella Valley including Desert Hot Springs, Palm Springs and Cathedral City.
