A bit about Diana Powell.

I was born and brought up in Llanelli, West Wales, and studied English at Aberystwyth University… a while ago, now. After years of moving around and being a mother, housewife, and various ‘part-time assistants’, I settled in Pembrokeshire with my husband, at the end of 2011.

In 2013, I won the Allen Raine Short Story Award, and in 2014 the PENfro festival Short Story Competition.

Since then, my stories have featured in a number of competitions, and have been published in several journals and anthologies .

In 2018, my novella, ‘Esther Bligh’, was published by Holland House Books.

In 2020, my story collection, ‘Trouble Crossing the Bridge’, was published by Chaffinch Press.

When I am not writing, I work in my woodland garden, or walk on the beautiful coast.
