Diane is an interior architect and writer who designs offices by day but writes and reads historical fiction at night. Her recent novel, Printer’s Ink, the biography of Australian newspaper pioneer Marion Leathem and the accompanying exegesis, Unreal Truths: The Lies in Every Story investigate the impact of historical biography on the writer’s unconscious mind and the intriguing psychological transferences which occur between a writer and her subject. Printer’s Ink is due for publication in 2020. Previously a former Deputy Chair of Writing NSW, Diane has been on the committee of the HNSA since 2014. Diane was awarded her PhD in 2016.
Diane is part of the 2019 conference.
