As an actresss, Diane had appeared in over 60 television shows and films with renowned directors, such as Woody Allen, Roger Vadim, and Dick Dnner. She played Julie Andrews sister, Bing Crosby’s and did Chekhov with Sean Penn. Her small, but most enduring role was Lana Lang in the original (Marlon Brandon and Christopher Reeves) “Superman, The Movie.”
Her short fiction has been widely published in literary magazines and the anthologies American Fiction, Best Short Stories by Emerging Writers, (editted by Louise Erdrich), Unnatural Disasters: Recent Writings from the Golden State, and, most recently Love Magick (edited by Francesca Lia Block.)
The jump from writing short stories to writing a novel (and adapting that as a screenplay) seemed natural for Diane and the desire to interpret her own material in film seemed to be the next logical step. Diane was given a grant and accepted into the American Film Institute's Directing Workshop for Women, based on the script adapted from the story, Spa-tel. The film went on to be seen in over 20 Film Festivals! Diane then adapted her short story Valentine's Day into a film.
Elepahant Milk was written in a young voice, but with adult themes. It loosely autobiographical, about a young girl who runs away from Hollywood and joins a Mexican circus. And yes, Diane did!
