Diana's first poem (at age 8) was torn up in anger. An audience has been slow to accumulate, understandably, since she wrote no poems for decades, and then transgressed, she was told, by writing a sonnet with a happy ending.

Her poems have appeared in Agenda, Smiths Knoll, and on the Poetry Society’s website. She was described in The Independent (2008) as “a fresh voice”, and seeks a publisher for a happy sonnet about mysterious unicycling children.
