DIANE LEE BARON is the author of Gal Wonder and The Fandom Fifty published by Firebringer Press. In Gal Wonder, Diane tells the story of a woman who becomes obsessed with meeting her childhood icon, Adam West, who starred as the 1960’s television Batman. While attempting to keep her personal life in order, chaos ensues as Sara Goode attends a con, sets a man’s tie on fire, and drives the Batmobile. But not all at the same time, or in that order. Are some of the wacky scenes in Gal Wonder based on events from the author’s own life? Maybe one… or two.
Diane’s next writing endeavor warps into the science fiction realm with an alien invasion and two strangers fighting for survival in a world of chaos and devastation. There will be more than a few nail-biting scenes, but in the midst of it all, there will be the human connections and the triumph of the spirit under impossible circumstances.
Diane currently resides in Columbia, Maryland. She is a teacher of visually impaired and blind students in Montgomery County Public Schools. Diane is single and content with her collection of Lego minifigures and Doc Martin DVDs. She’s obsessed with swimming laps all summer in her complex’s pool and has the gills to prove it. When cold weather arrives, she becomes a crafter of altered art.
