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 graduated from Villanova University with a B.A. in English. At age 27 she relocated to South Florida, where she actively pursued her goal of becoming a published writer, contributing feature stories and articles for publications including The Happy Herald, On the Inside and Boca Kidz Magazine.

With the advent of the “blogosphere,” she channeled her passion for the USA, cultural issues and traditional values into two successful blogs, Muzz Musings and Freedom Bright, infusing keen insight and thoughtful consideration into such topics as radical Islamic terrorism, Military heroism and national security. In 2004, Daria’s efforts led to an appearance on FOX News Channel to discuss politics and dating. She was also featured as a weekly columnist for the online magazine, The Martini Lounge, where she eloquently and oftentimes humorously opined on everything from her lifelong love of professional football to her “haunted” vacation in Savannah, Georgia.

DiGiovanni has also worked as a content writer for a Boca Raton-based company specializing in online marketing for the hospitality industry, as well as a copywriter for a textbook publishing firm. An avid reader and gifted wordsmith from a very young age, Water Signs embodies the accomplishment of Daria’s childhood dream of becoming a novelist-something she’s been promising her supportive, patient parents for many years! She’s thrilled to finally bring that desire to fruition and even more excited by the prospect of touching many lives with a heartfelt story of familial bonds, first love, faith, personal growth and forgiveness.

When not reading or writing, she enjoys going to the beach, swimming, biking, walking, ballroom dancing and spending time with family and friends. Oh, and she’s still a devoted Eagles fan who never misses a game during football season!
