This is the story of an ill-fated affair with a dude who met all my requirements for the perfect nerdy boyfriend … almost. I’m really proud of how it turned out! From “Fangirl: the absolutely true story of how fictional characters ruined my life.” Recorded for “Story League Story Contest 3: My Secret.”
Hey, I'm Diane! I'm a writer and storyteller, currently living in Washington, D.C.
From a self-composed how-to guide on being an adventure heroine, to an obsessive college crush on the vaguely-Harrison-Ford-resembling editor of the college newspaper, to sundry forays into erotic, historical fanfiction, my material comes from the tragic yet hilarious place where fangirl obsession meets modern reality.
I like thrifting, watching NBC comedies, and getting emotional about fiction.
