Diana started writing as soon as she learned how to read, composing fantastical tales and keeping a diary. In later youth and early adulthood, she also began writing poetry. Her childhood memories of the blazing heat of the Israeli dessert are largely reflected in her writings, as are the snowy Canadian winters. She is often inspired by her favourite authors, including Jane Austen, J. R. R. Tolkien, and William Shakespeare. Ms. Spektor holds an Honours B.A. in English and is in the process of obtaining an Editing Certificate. She currently resides in Toronto, Ontario.
