Diana De Gunzburg, Tony Wild - Author

About the Author

Diana, by Tony
I first met Diana at a party in her Yorkshire mother's house: I thought she was lovely, a great dancer – and a total fantasist. She told me tall stories about her childhood in northern Pakistan, about her great-grandfather having been hanged by the British, about her aristocratic white Russian grandmother who had escaped back to Russia after the Revolution, about her grandfather being murdered in his bed, about the huge cave in her father's mountain with an ancient Buddhist temple inside and about daily life in the Frontier with its cast of hermaphrodite servants being swung from ceiling fans, deaf and dumb butlers, drivers recently gaoled with their camels, and the princely palace she played in.


Looking as she did – more, like a beautiful Swede than my image of a subcontinental – made it all the easier to dismiss Diana's stories as an update of The Arabian Nights.

A few months later I accompanied her Pashtun father from the UK overland to Pakistan. There I found that everything that Diana had told me was in fact true: there actually was a White Russian grandmother, a Buddhist cave, an uncle who was a Nawab with not just one, but several palaces, and even a deaf and dumb butler.

After many creative adventures and travels together over the years we decided to write The Moonstone Legacy Trilogy. Like Diana's childhood tales, it turned out to be more true to life than you might at first think...

Tony, by Diana
I first met Tony at my older sister's 21st.  He had a lot more hair then. He sweetly defended me against my sister's condescending boyfriend, which was a good start!  Since we have shared so many creative journeys physical and metaphysical, musical and visual. The Moonstone Legacy Trilogy is the culmination of pretty much everything we've done together philosophically, spiritually, physically and virtually – such fun! We had to do it, it was written!
