Diana Stevan likes to joke that she’s a Jill of all trades as she’s not only worked as a clinical social worker, but also as a teacher, librarian, professional model, professional actress and a sports writer-broadcaster for CBC television.

With writing as her passion, she’s published fitness and travel articles for newspapers, poetry in the U.K. journal, Dreamcatcher, and a short story in Escape, an anthology. Her novels: A Cry From The Deep, a romantic mystery/adventure (2014); The Rubber Fence, inspired by her work on a psychiatric ward (2016) and Sunflowers Under Fire, historical fiction (2019), and a novelette, The Blue Nightgown, coming-of-age story (2015).

Her latest novel, Sunflowers Under Fire, was nominated for the 2019 Whistler Independent Book Award.  

When she isn’t writing, she loves to garden, travel, and read. With their two daughters grown, Diana lives with her husband Robert on Vancouver Island and West Vancouver, British Columbia.
