I am a high school English teacher and the author of three novels. In a happy outcome of the COVID-19 pandemic, I have also returned to my childhood love of art. You can follow my painting progress on instagram, @dianepaintsflowers.
My most recent novel, What She Inherits (2017), was named an Honorable Mention in the Writer's Digest 25th Annual Self-Published Book Awards. My first novel, Watch Me Disappear (2012), was a finalist in the Kindle Book Review's Best Indie Book Awards in the Young Adult category in 2013, and my second, The Latecomers Fan Club (2013), was named a 2014 IndieReader Discovery Award winner. In 2015, I released a brief guide book to self-publishing called The Sane Person's Guide to Self-Publishing. From 2012 to 2018, I was the managing editor of The Worcester Review.
When I’m not teaching, writing, and editing, I can be found rock climbing with my hubby, strumming my guitar and singing sad, sappy folk songs, or spending long hours in my kitchen baking homemade bread and from-scratch dinners because cooking is the second-best therapy I’ve found (second only to writing, of course).
