Diane Duane was born in Manhattan, one of the boroughs of New York, sometime around the middle of the twentieth century.
Sometime in the intervening years, she managed to find herself living in County Wicklow in Ireland, along with three cats, four enormously over-worked computers, and her husband (and occasional co-author) Peter Morwood.
Her first novel, The Door Into Fire, was published by Dell Books in 1979. Her output since then has been prodigious. She has published some thirty novels, numerous short stories, and various comics and computer games, as well as having written extensively for television.
In that medium alone she has produced scripts for animated shows as diverse as Transformers, My Little Pony, Scooby Doo, Spiderman and Batman, as well as having worked with Star Trek in many different forms, from the TV show to books, comics and computer games.
Diane is a lively and entertaining guest, and much in demand at conventions internationally, and we are delighted to have her at ours.
