About Diana Urban

Diana Urban 2015By day I’m a marketing manager at BookBub, where I blog about book marketing and publishing tips. By night I’m the author of Young Adult and Middle Grade thrillers. I’m represented by Eric Smith at P.S. Literary.

I’m originally from New York, where I cultured deep-rooted obsessions with Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and a myriad of other nerdy fandoms. Desperate to avoid life in a cubicle, I went to Boston University to major in film. While I later switched my major to advertising, I’m happy to report that no cubicles are involved. I’ve worked at tech startups in Boston for all of my career, where we bask in open office spaces and depend on noise-cancelling headphones to get any work done.

In the back of my mind, I always wanted to be a writer. But life, launching my career, and loads of other silly excuses got in the way. Finally, in December 2012, I went on a business trip to Paris, where I witnessed something terrifying and fascinating. It inspired me to write my first young adult thriller.

I live in Cambridge, Massachusetts with my husband Bryan and our cat Kitty, who acts like a dog. She’s probably just rebelling against our lack of creativity while naming her.
