Diana Petrova has four published books and a contract for her fifth manuscript. The Castle of the Flies made her a recognized writer for children, whereas The Double Planet explored the fraught subject of adopted children. Her third book, the debut novel Ana, received contradictory reviews in the media because of the provocative character of the main heroine. Petrova’s fourth book and second novel Synesthesia, shortlisted in the 2014 New Bulgarian Novel Contest of Ciela, was published in Bulgarian by Iztok-Zapad Publishing House in November 2014. Excerpts from Synesthesia in English were published in the international literary magazine B O D Y: and in Vagabond magazine.
Petrova has worked as an editor in several publishing houses. Currently she works at a software company and writes stories for a wedding agency as a freelancer, a number of which are available in Bulgarian at her website: podarimiprikazka.com.
