Diana Harmon Asher is the mother of three grown sons, all of whom were cross country runners. Their ups and downs on the trails, in school and among friends inspired her to write her debut novel, Sidetracked.
After graduating from Yale University with a BA in English, Diana worked in subsidiary rights at Doubleday & Co., Inc. and as East Coast Story Editor for Columbia Pictures. After starting a family, she became an at-home mother and decided to try her hand at writing. She lives with her husband and their dog and cat in Westchester, NY and has been involved in literacy and writing programs at The Children’s Village in Dobbs Ferry, NY, and Mt. Pleasant Blythedale School for many years.
Diana has been thrilled by the warm reception that Sidetracked has received from teachers, librarians, and most of all, from kids. Her new book, Upstaged, moves from running trails to the middle school musical stage. It was published by Abrams on March 16, 2021.
