DIANA WATERS


M/M Fantasy Romance

Bio

As mentioned on my homepage, I’m an M/M romance author from New Zealand.

I grew up on fantasy, from New Zealand-born authors like Sherryl Jordan and Juliet Marillier to global household names like Robin Hobb and Patrick Rothfuss. I discovered the M/M romance genre firsthand around 2010, with many of my all-time favourite M/M authors likewise writing prolifically within fantasy worlds – R. Cooper, Amy Lane, C.S. Pacat, Jaye McKenna, S.J. Himes, and Megan Derr, just to name a few. Unsurprisingly, I now write exactly what I like to read: mostly fictional-world M/M fantasy with healthy doses of my favourite trope, hurt/comfort… provided it comes with an HEA or HFN, of course!

While I still very much think of New Zealand as home, I've lived most of my adult life overseas, spending several years in Japan and several months in Thailand before moving to my current residence in Brooklyn, New York. As you might be able to guess, other than reading and writing, I’m pretty passionate about travel! I’m also very fond of swimming, fooling around with amateur photography, chilling to lo-fi hip-hop, and falling asleep to ASMR.
