Author's Bio

After her Tulsa upbringing and with a psychology degree from Vassar College, Diane Furtney worked a year in Israel (1967), then took an assortment of jobs, sometimes in clinical psychology, in several U.S. cities. Besides nonfiction ghostwriting, she has authored two prize-winning poetry chapbooks (DESTINATION ROOMS and IT WAS A GAME) and two comic mystery novels (MURDER AT THE MLA and MURDER IN THE NEW AGE, pseudonym D.J.H. Jones). Her poems and translations (French, Japanese) are in numerous journals in the U.S. and England, including The Virginia Quarterly Review, The Iowa Review, Poetry International, The Kenyon Review and Stand. A full-length collection of science-based poems, SCIENCE AND, was published in 2014 by FutureCycle Press: see www.amazon.com/author/dianefurtneybooks for details, including a statement of aesthetics. Diane Furtney lives now near Phoenix, and will be giving several readings at science conferences in 2014/2015.
