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. Now, this Florida girl lives with her husband and their puppy in Washington D.C., and writes books that rock

Her first novel, Secret Society Girl (2006), was described as “witty and endearing” by The New York Observer and was placed on the New York Public LIbrary’s 2007 Books for the Teen Age list. The follow-up, Under the Rose (...more

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

“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

“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
