Diana J. Timms

I wrote my first ‘book’ when I was eight. It was about two friends who found an island full of dogs and had adventures there. It wasn’t quite the bestseller I planned it to be, but I fell in love with writing.

Since then, my short stories have been published in The Mays Anthology, Bandit Fiction and by Cambridge Creatives, and I won First Place in the Arrol Adams Fiction Prize 2019. The Useless is an adult dystopian novel that I am currently editing and planning to query soon. Have a look under the ‘Writing’ menu to find out more about my work.

When I’m not writing, I can be found with a gin and tonic, discussing feminism or social issues, or else driving out of the Fens to find a hill to climb. Going for long walks with the dogs is my favourite way of searching for literary inspiration, although once I have a story idea I then have to get the cat off my desk so that I can write.
