Dianne dreamed up other worlds and their characters as a child in the 1980s. She formed her own neighborhood astronomy club before age 10, to educate her friends about the universe. In addition to writing stories, she drew and painted her characters, designed their outrageous space fashions, and created travel guides and glossaries for the worlds she invented. As an adult, Dianne earned a life science degree and spent several years working in research. Today Dianne, her husband, and their children all make up a house of serious nerds who enjoy walking, creating, and eating Dianne’s baked goods.
