Last Summer At Barebones


Diane Baker Mason is a Toronto writer who has published fiction, opinion and poetry, and whose work has won awards in Canada, Australia and the United States.

Her stories have appeared everywhere from respected literary journals to supermarket tabloids. A flair for the ridiculous governs her writing, causing her to address even the most dire of circumstances with a sidelong and slippery humour.

Diane Baker Mason graduated summa cum laude from York University in Toronto, with an Honours Degree in English Literature. Her fascination with life's imbalances and injustices has sent her not only into writing, but into law. She graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School in June, 2003, and is now an associate lawyer at Mitchell, Bardyn & Zalucky LLP, a mid-size Toronto law firm with a general practice. She is perpetually half-way through finishing her third novel.

Diane Baker Mason is the mother of twin boys, Alan and Ian.
