"Stories with Wonder in one hand, Adventure in the other."

About & Bio

Diana lives in a small suburban Colorado city a mile away from where she grew up.  She loves studying magic and history and will take any opportunity to combine them into a good story.  She once tried to work a spell inspired by a tale her great aunt told her and has always felt lucky that it only turned her fingers green for a week.  Her work appears in Fiction River’s Sparks anthology, edited by Rebecca Moesta, available now, and the Editors Cut anthology, edited by Mark Lefebvre in late 2016.

Fiction River: Sparks (Volume 17): “The Laser Point”

Everyone faces dark times. Everyone looks for a light to get through. These fifteen stories show teen heroes/heroines using creativity and heart to find their inner “spark” to overcome adversity, evil, or ignorance. These compelling young heroes/heroines prove sometimes it simply takes a spark to light a fire in the darkness. “If you haven’t checked out Fiction River yet, you should. There’s something for everyone.” —Keith West, Adventures Fantastic

FR-Alchemy-Steam-ebook-coverFiction River: Alchemy & Steam (Fiction River: An Original Anthology Magazine Book 13): “Pennies for Portents”

Alchemy changes more than dross into gold. It changes steampunk stories into stories of magical transformation. These thirteen stories combine science and magic into do-not-miss alternate history stories that span the globe. Travel with a soul-stealing carnival, meet the Grand Dangoolie, put on some perfect perfume, and sample some magical chocolate. These adventures grace the pages of the most creative volume of Fiction River yet.

“If you haven’t checked out Fiction River yet, you should. There’s something for everyone.”
—Keith West, Adventures Fantastic

“… fans of the unconventional will be well satisfied.”
