Tucson Festival of Books

Diana Quincy (she/her)


Sponsored by Women's Health and Integrative Medical Center

Best-selling author Diana Quincy is a former television journalist who decided she would rather make up stories where a happy ending is always guaranteed. Since her 2013 debut, Quincy's books have landed on annual “Best of” lists in Library Journal and The Washington Post. 

As the daughter of a United States Foreign Service Officer, Quincy grew up all over the world. Although she is now happily settled in Virginia, Quincy still gets the itch to explore far-off places. When she is not bent over her laptop, Quincy reads, practices yoga and plots her next travel adventure. Her newest book is "The Duke Gets Desperate."

Quincy loves to hear from readers. You can follow her on Facebook, Instagram, and join her private readers’ group, Diana’s Divas, on Facebook.

Historical Romance Done Differently
When we think of historical romance, we think of formal balls and house parties, often centered in British mansions and featuring well-heeled elites. In this session, our authors will discuss historic novels featuring members of socially excluded groups ... characters living in places and spaces well beyond the usual settings.
