Diane Duane (born 18 May 1952; age 63) is the author of numerous Star Trek novels, including The Wounded Sky, Doctor's Orders and Spock's World (Pocket TOS), Dark Mirror and Intellivore (Pocket TNG), and the Rihannsu series – My Enemy, My Ally, The Romulan Way, Swordhunt, Honor Blade, and The Empty Chair. She also created a Romulan language for the Rihannsu novels.

Duane has also written more than thirty non-Trek books; among these she is probably best known for the "Young Wizards" series, [1] which is currently in its eighth volume. Other books include the "Feline Wizardry Sequence" and the "Door..." series.

Duane lives in Ireland with her husband Peter Morwood, who has collaborated with her on several books and also on some film and television projects.

Duane is the co-writer of TNG: "Where No One Has Gone Before", which was loosely based on The Wounded Sky.

ST comics she has written include "Double Blind, Part One" and "Double Blind, Part II", "The Last Word", and the Ill Wind mini-series.

Diane Duane has worked with Star Trek in perhaps the most forms of anyone alive. Besides comics, novels and TV, she has adapted her own work for audio, has written for the new Star Trek manga series, has written short Trek fiction for anthologies, and plotted and wrote the first Star Trek computer game, Star Trek: The Kobayashi Alternative.

She also makes a habit of including Star Trek references in her non-Trek books.

A character in "Debt of Honor", a comic from DC, was named for Diane Duane, in a sense – a Diane Morwood was the third-in-command of the engineering section of the USS Farragut, and a colleague of Lieutenant James T. Kirk, in 2254.
