A graduate of Wittenberg and Harvard, Diane Croft has spent most of her career as a publisher at National Braille Press, a nonprofit braille printing and publishing house in Boston. She has edited and published dozens of books, including the award-winning biography Louis Braille: A Touch of Genius, now available in seven languages. Her poem Birdsong was selected to be inscribed on a rock in Edmands Park, and another poem Flight appears on a sidewalk - visible only when it rains - at The Street in Chestnut Hill.

For three years, Diane had access to a hidden, animated realm, described by C.G Jung as "the collective unconscious," which she illuminates in her new book The Unseen Partner: Love & Longing in the Unconscious, winner of the 60th New England Book Show award, the 2016-2017 Reader Views Literary Award, the 2017 Next Generation Indie Book Award, and the 2016 Nautilus Book Award. She lives in a Victorian farmhouse in Boston with her family.
