Diana Bishop is a historian of alchemy who teaches at Yale University. Her alma maters include Bates College and New College, Oxford. She prefers tea to coffee, and her favorite food is pizza. When she’s not in the library, she’s usually found on the river in a quite long, very narrow boat. She also happens to be a witch. You can friend Diana on Facebook.
