Diana Griffin is a California girl, long since transplanted in the Finger Lakes region of upstate NY, where she finds the soil to be a little too cold and gray for her taste. She is a busy solo mom, lover of simple things, of good food, good company, quiet moments, fresh air, movement, and her two daughters above all else. Life is her muse, especially the bittersweet parts, and she writes from a deep love of words and their ability to transform the mundane, painful and even tragic parts of life into something somehow rich and more meaningful. In her non-existent spare time she tries (and mostly fails) to grow zucchini, writes a bit, and works at being a great friend and a good human. Find her on Facebook .
