Diane D. Gillette has a couple master’s degrees, two demanding cats, and lives with the love of her life in Chicago. She co-founded the online literary magazine Cat on a Leash Review and harbors a somewhat unhealthy enthusiasm for her own felines. When she’s not too busy reading, writing, or appeasing her cats, she’s probably teaching or making vegan baked goods. She’s had over three dozen short stories and prose poems published in various literary venues. You can find more of her published work through digillette.com.
