Diane is a writer/director who is drawn to magical realism and science fiction/fantasy. Her favourite topics to explore usually involve mental illness, or the dark side of love and spirituality. Her sense of humour is very dry, so she tends to stick to drama.
She received her Bachelor of Arts in Film Studies and Literature/Writing from Columbia University, and her Master of Fine Arts in Writing for the Screen + Stage from Northwestern University.
She teaches Screenwriting and Directing at Wilfrid Laurier University.
Liliath & Penumbra is her company.
