About Diane Masiello

Far from what I once was, but not yet what I am going to be. 



Diane Masiello holds a Ph.D. in English Education from New York University. She has worked as a first-year-writing teacher at New York University, and an Instructor of English, then Assistant Professor of English at the University of Tampa. During her time in academia she edited and contributed to a variety of academic publications, presented papers on teaching writing at conferences, and had her essays published in local journals. Her greatest joy was the publication of her first short fantasy story, “The Sunspot,” in CrossTime Science Fiction Anthology Vol. II. In 2003 she left academia to raise her two daughters. She has been blogging since her children were young, and is now a regular blogger at The Gloria Sirens. She has just completed her first young adult fantasy novel, Keeper.
