About Diana

Some of the worldview of Buddhism has subtly permeated my fictional writing.  My short stories have been published in literary journals and my debut novel, Things Unsaid, will be published October 2015 by She Writes Press.  I am not new to writing, however.  I have written three nonfiction books on Buddhism while I was a professor at Stanford University, by American Academy of Religion Press, University of California Press, and Stanford University Press. Two have been translated into other languages.     I have also written essays, book reviews, and  movie reviews for www.womensmemoirs.com.  In addition to writing fiction, I am a printmaker, specializing in woodblock and mixed media prints.  My work has been exhibited in California, Hawaii, and Japan and has also been featured in the art journals Ascent Aspirations, Blood Lotus,  5 x 5, and Imitation Fruit.

  1. Hello Diana…I am the person who fell instantly in love with your lovely print inspired by Spanish architecture, intended for your daughter. I will be taking my husband by tomorrow to view it through the window of the framing shop, and hopefully he will concur. If not, I wondered if your “Organic Carrot” print was available to purchase, as I also loved that, and hopefully it might be a little more affordable for us. We live in snowy Wisconsin, but have just bought a little house in Carmel, and either one, or both, of your prints would be wonderful additions to our new house!
    I look forward to hearing from you!
    Sincerely, Alden Taylor

    I finally arrived! At this site. Lovely and wonderful . Liked the watercolor collage print a bunch. I’m particularly interested in reading more of your movie reviews.
    Hope to see you soon.
