The Mackinac Island story has been a work in progress for a long time, but I finally got a chance to work on it again. This time, I turned it into a five-minute story for First Person Arts in Philadelphia. This April, I participated as part of “Team Detroit” in the Philly vs. Detroit StorySlam. This is the result of a ton of editing, multiple workshops, and a lot of practice. I’m really happy with it!
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.
