Diamond Monique Washington is a screenwriter who specializes in thrillers. Her unique style combines dark, ominous tones with intense character arcs that result in unnerving storylines that leave you craving more.
Born and raised in Michigan, Diamond’s passion for screenwriting developed at the early age of 8. She spent her youth writing short stories and acting them out in her room alone, leaping from character to character.
At age 15, she moved to Arizona where she attended 8 different high schools as she was moved around constantly. She refused to let her instability cause her to lose focus. As a result, she gained an appreciation for diversity and human connection, which is exemplified in her writing.
Diamond graduated film school at Scottsdale Community College where she studied television and film production.
She has written 4 produced shorts.
Collectively, her work takes on controversial issues including mental health disorders and sexuality, to inspire self-awareness and acceptance.
