About this author

Diana Peterfreund has been a costume designer, a cover model, and a food critic. Her travels have taken her from the cloud forests of Costa Rica to the underground caverns of New Zealand (and as far as she’s concerned, she’s just getting started). Diana graduated from Yale University in 2001 with dual degrees in Literature and Geology, which her family claimed would only come in handy if she wrote books about rocks.

This Wednesday at 6:30 PM, I’ll be reading and signing with my buddy, YA author Mari Mancusi, at Austin’s fabulous independent bookstore, THE BOOK SPOT. This is the first time in my entire life I’ve done an Austin event, and possibly the furthest west I’ve signed in my whole career, so don’t miss out!


Oh, and I may be bringing my OMEGA CITY tattoos!

For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
"This book gave me happy tears. I love the concept of sci-fi Jane Austen and it was so well done and made me so happy. LOVED IT!"
More of Diana's books…
“Envy hurt exponentially more than heartbreak because your soul was torn in two, half soaring with happiness for another person, half mired in a well of selfpity
and pain.”
Diana Peterfreund, For Darkness Shows the Stars

“In every letter, in every line, she saw him. He hadn't changed - he'd only grown into the man he'd meant to be.”
Diana Peterfreund, For Darkness Shows the Stars

“I can wait in silence no longer, but I’m afraid I’m already too late. I am trapped between agony and hope—believing I have no right to speak, but knowing more how much I’d regret it if I did not. Tell me I’m not wrong. Tell me that, this time, you will accept my offer. Because I’m making it again. I want you with me, Elliot. It’s all I have ever wanted. I offer you everything I have—my world, my ship, my self—perhaps they will be enough to replace what I know you would be giving up if you came with me.”
Diana Peterfreund, For Darkness Shows the Stars

“Amazing how being bathed in arterial blood can wash out any lingering romantic disappointments.”
Diana Peterfreund, Rampant

“Sometimes you met someone that changed the pattern, who wormed their way past the cracks in your heart, caulked them up, sealed themselves in, and stayed there. Sometimes they did it by insisting you meet them at every step, as Jamie had done to me.”
Diana Peterfreund, Tap & Gown

“Unicorns are man-eating monsters. They don't have wings, they aren't lavender or sparkly, and you could never catch one to ride without its goring you through the sternum. And even if it somehow managed to miss your major arteries-and it never misses-you'd still die from the deadly poison in its horn.”
Diana Peterfreund

“I found the hum of his computer rather soothing, but it was the complete lack of unicorn carcasses that really pulled the room together.”
Diana Peterfreund, Rampant

“There was that word again.Mature. Was this what maturity was? Giving up on the things we wanted because we knew we’d never get them?”
Diana Peterfreund
