About Diane Duane

Diane Duane has been a science fiction and fantasy writer for forty years. Her best known works include her long-running (since 1983) "Young Wizards" series — its tenth novel, Games Wizards Play, having been published in 2017 — and the nine bestselling Star Trek novels for which, among many other works, she was recently awarded the Grand Master / lifetime achievement award of the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers.

Her TV and film writing has included characters ranging from Jean-Luc Picard to Batman and from Siegfried the Volsung to Scooby-Doo. Her most recent such accomplishment is running Sean Bean around a postapocalyptic New York landscape in tight leather pants, in the SyFy miniseries The Lost Future. (She tried to leave Sean alive at the end, she really did, but sometimes things just don’t work out…)

Her present workload includes a new historical novel, Games, involving the ancient Roman entertainment industry, in collaboration with her husband Peter Morwood; the eleventh Young Wizards novel, its title to be announced in 2020; and the completion of the final book in the main sequence of her Middle Kingdoms fantasy series,The Door Into Starlight.

In her spare time Diane gardens, cooks, hangs out on Twitter and Tumblr, and studies astronomy, food history, and European rail schedules.
