Alumni Spotlight: Heather Diamond
Today, we're catching up with Heather Diamond. A resident of Hong Kong, she has a Ph.D. in American Studies and has worked as a bookseller, university lecturer, and museum curator. Heather's most recent book, Rabbit in the Moon (a memoir), was published in 2021 by Camphor Press. Heather is also the author of American Aloha: Cultural Tourism and the Negotiation of Tradition, published by University of Hawai'i Press.

Moving and travel have been Heather's biggest writing influences. She is working on a second memoir about leaving the Pacific Northwest for Arkansas and Texas.


Last fall, Heather took our Writing Essays About Travel and Food 4-Week Online Workshop with Diana Spechler. Of Diana's class, she said, "It is always fascinating and inspiring to read what other writers are doing." In the short term, Heather wants to publish another memoir and a collection of CNF essays.

We're rooting for you, Heather! Thank you for letting us be part of your writing journey!
