The Whole Story

Diana Rodriguez Wallach was born in Ridley Township, PA during the Great Blizzard of 1978. Since then, her birthday festivities have been frequently snowed out, though that didn’t stop her from following the cold winds north to Boston University where she graduated with a B.S. in Journalism from the College of Communication.

During her junior year, she spent her spring semester studying in Madrid, Spain where she worked for a university-run radio station. She backpacked across Europe, staying in many sketchy establishments, and even spent spring break with her now-husband, Jordan, in Bali, Indonesia.

Post graduation, Diana moved to Manhattan where she worked as a reporter for a hotel trade magazine and learned how to write lots of copy very quickly. She also briefly worked as the managing editor of an online real estate publication before moving back to her native Philadelphia. Pledging to do something more meaningful with her life, Diana joined the nonprofit world where she worked as the communications associate for an organization focused on improving public education.

Diana began writing her first novel in late 2004 after a Salem, MA psychic curiously predicted she would go on to write children’s books (seriously…read the whole story). She wrote two novels before Amor and Summer Secrets sold to Kensington Publishing. Her agent called with the good news on Fat Tuesday 2007 while she was at Mardi Gras wearing beads and feathered mask.

Diana's new short-story trilogy for the Mythology High anthology is an updated take on the myth of Narcissus and Nemesis. She wrote the first story, Sucked Into the Looking Glass, in two hours while sitting in coffee shop in Philadelphia. She can only hope that writing will always be that easy.

Currently, Diana lives in Philadelphia with her husband Jordan, her daughter Juliet, and her cat Lupi, who was rescued from a shelter in Harlem. Diana enjoys traveling, watching General Hospital, reading great novels, playing Fantasy Football and cheering on the Philadelphia Eagles.
