Diane Duane has been a writer of science fiction, fantasy, TV and film for nearly four decades.
Besides the 1980s creation of the Young Wizards fantasy series for which she's best known, the "Middle Kingdoms" epic fantasy series, and numerous stand-alone fantasy or science fiction novels, her career has included extensive work in the Star TrekTM universe and many scripts for live-action and animated TV series on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as work in comics and computer games. She has spent a fair amount of time on the New York Times Bestseller List, and has picked up various awards here and there-most recently the "Faust" Grand Master Scribe award of the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers.
She lives in County Wicklow in Ireland with her husband of thirty years, the screenwriter and novelist Peter Morwood.
