Daria DiGiovanni was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and raised in the nearby suburb of Media. The youngest of five children in a close-knit family, she earned a B.A. in English from Villanova University before relocating to South Florida at age 27. A passionate wordsmith from a very early age, DiGiovanni’s experience includes copywriting, website content, e-proposal and RFP writing, blogging and book editing. Her first novel, Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal, loosely chronicles her own 16-year spiritual and personal growth journey in a simultaneously heart-wrenching and uplifting tale of first love, family, second chances, forgiveness, gratitude and patriotism.
In July, 2009 Water Signs won the Book of the Week Award from Blurb! Talk Radio, competing with several other novels for that coveted title. Daria appeared on Blurb! Talk Radio with Dr. Kent and Sally to discuss her work and accept her award on July 15, 2009. Listen to the interview here.
On September 23, 2009, she addressed the Hawthorne Writers Group in Hawthorne, New Jersey. Watch the video of her presentation here.
Daria was also selected as one of twelve authors to participate in the Delray Beach Library’s Eleventh Annual Author’s Showcase, which took place on January 10, 2010. She appeared in a promotional piece prior to the event in the Boca Raton Forum, having been interviewed about her work by journalist, Marcie Shatzman.
She currently resides in Boca Raton, Florida.
