Diana Mayora

Biography

Diana Isabel Mayora was born September 15, 1995, in Panama City, Panamá. She is the daughter of Gisela Santamaría and Justo Mayora. She has an older sister called Sofia and a cat, Ramón.

She started writing in diaries and notebooks when she was nine years old and published her first book of short stories, Asi de Simple y Otras Complejidades (only in Spanish), in 2013 with Foro/Taller Sagitario Ediciones.

Then spent the last five years (2013-2019) writing short stories, articles and her blog "Versión Urbana" (2013-2015), studying psychology in Santa María la Antigua Catholic University, volunteering for Make A Wish Foundation and tutoring children with learning difficulties.

The last six months of 2018 and first few of 2019 were dedicated to the creation of her new book "Violent Delights", a compilation of poems about "making hard decisions" and being in a toxic relationship in this time.

She expects to continue writing more stories for everyone to read and become inspired. She plans to keep working on the Violent Delights Kingdom, as a platform to give hope and help people on toxic relationships. She is working on her next blog which will be focused on her journey to a more mindful lifestyle and tips to help you become your truest self.

Smashwords Interview

What do your fans mean to you?
My writing and my life will not be complete without my fans. They are the readers and the other half of this whole thing. I can write but they need to read it and give me their opinions and how to be better for them. The stories I write are all about them. They are made in a place of hope, love, and inspiration just for them to read and enjoy, feel the feelings, get involved and maybe inspire them to write their own stories. The human brain is wired to understand and give meaning to life through stories and that's what they mean to me: understanding and meaning.
What are you working on next?
As a writer I'll always be writing whether is a new short story, novel, book, blog, film, play or just the caption of my Instagram photos. I'll always be reading and creating something. For me, the next thing is working on the Violent Delights Kingdom platform. This will be a place to give hope and help people in toxic relationships, something I lived myself and know how hard it can be. I will also be working in a new book, podcast, and blog about my journey to a better, more mindful and honest life and give tips to help others become their truest self. I will be so grateful, happy and thrilled to have all of you on this train with me.
