J. Dianne Dotson
J. Dianne Dotson dreamed up other worlds and their characters as a child in the 1980s in East Tennessee. 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 degree in ecology and evolutionary biology, and spent several years working in research. She published Heliopause: The Questrison Saga®: Book One (2018) and its sequels Ephemeris: The Questrison Saga®: Book Two (2019) and Accretion: The Questrison Saga®: Book Three (2020). Book Four arrives in 2021. Dianne is also a science writer, content writer and manager, short story writer, watercolorist, and illustrator. She lives with her family in Southern Appalachia.
