• “The smartest historical sci-fi adventure-romance story ever written by a science Ph.D. with a background in scripting 'Scrooge McDuck' comics.”—Salon.com
  • A time-hopping, continent-spanning salmagundi of genres.”
  • “These books have to be word-of-mouth books because they're too weird to describe to anybody.”

  1. Hi Diana
    Never have a read a novel in my life until i was given Crossstitch by my Nan. I am now up to Fiery Cross and loving every goddamn second of it. Being half scottish you have opened a deep rooted urge in me to get over there and set foot where my relative live and ancestors lay. Cant wait to meet you in Canberra. Have a safe trip and see you here soon

  2. I really hope I can make it to your Perth appearance! I fly away for work, and am taking time off for my sister's birthday on the 6th, and my best friend's wedding on the 7th, I'll try to squeeze a few extra days off, because I would love to meet you!

  3. Aw what about the Northern Territory? We always miss out :(

  4. I've just bought my ticket to see you at the Windsor Hotel in Melbourne. I couldn't believe that you were coming to Australia and I was determined to not miss seeing you. I am driving 4 1/2 hrs to get there. See you in Melbourne Diana!!

  5. OMG! I am so thrilled your publishers have now included Adelaide in your upcoming book tour. 8 weeks ago I started an overseas trip and before I left I checked your book tour schedule, but unfortunatley Adelaide was not it! :( All those emails and phone calls must have paid off!!
    Was about to book my flight & accommodation to Melbourne from Adelaide, but now can use the $$$$ I have saved on more of your books! Thanks Diana for providing a wonderful escape from everyday chaos of my life – I am really looking forward to meeting you in Adelaide. I live about 2 hours away, but I know the drive will be worth it.
    Safe travels and enjoy your time Down Under!

  6. Hi Diana
    Just wondering if the Canberra, Aus venue has been finalised….its coming up shortly, do not want to miss it :)

  7. Judy and I will see you in Canberra (18 Nov at Belconnen Arts Centre) – I'll be all tarted up for a pic (?) (ie, tartaned – refer Panalba Buchanan) .

    Malcolm & Judy Buchanan
