Yesterday was supposed to be my second time hosting another talented member of the Life List Club. Unfortunately, Life caught up with Diana Ligaya and she was unable to complete her article on time. I've taken the liberty of posting her bio though and encourage everyone to check out her blog. Just click on her name. I'm over at Marcia Richards' blog this week and it's a wonderful world over there.
Diana Ligaya has been fascinated with science and technology ever since she could remember. Her voracious appetite for stories and thirst for adventure led her to explore the infinite worlds of speculative fiction.
She loves everything from hard science fiction to post-apocalyptic dystopias and everything in between. She prefers to mix aspects of sub-genres within her work rather than sticking to a “standard” genre framework. In her universe, power struggles are both literal and figurative; technology and magic can co-exist; vampires don’t sparkle; zombies aren’t caused by viruses; and the things that go “bump” in the night are all too real.
If she had to pick her absolute favorite sub-genre, it would be cyberpunk. Her work tends towards the post-cyberpunk end of the spectrum, with an emphasis of pervasive advancement of technology and its widespread sociological impact.
When she’s not working on her fiction credits, Diana works from home as a freelance writer, specializing in technology. Outside of writing, she enjoys photography, cooking and napping as much as humanly possible. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, their daughter and their mutt.
