Biographical history

Ann Diamond (born April 11, 1951, in Montreal) is a Canadian writer known for her contributions to poetry, short stories, and novels. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from Concordia University and pursued creative writing at Goddard College. Diamond debuted in 1977 with her first book, "Lil." Her second work, "A Nun's Diary," was adapted for the stage by Robert LePage under the title "Echo" and was showcased in Montreal and Toronto at Theatre Passe Muraille. In 1992, she published "Terrorist Letters," marking her third poetry collection. Transitioning to novels, Diamond released "Mona's Dance" in 1989, followed by the short story compilations "Snakebite" in 1989 and "Evil Eye" in 1991. Her narrative style, often characterized by blending realism and surrealism, prominently features female protagonists grappling with complex relationships. "Evil Eye" notably won the 1994 Hugh MacLennan Prize for Fiction. Subsequent works include "Dead White Males" in 2000 and "Static Control" in 2006.
