Diana Wynne Jones (16 August 1934 – 26 March 2011) was a British writer and poet, principally of fantasy and speculative fiction novels for children and adults. Some of her better-known works are the Chrestomanci series, the Dalemark series; the novels Howl's Moving Castle and Dark Lord of Derkholm; and The Tough Guide To Fantasyland. She has been cited as an inspiration and muse for several fantasy and science fiction authors: including Phillip Pullman, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Penelope Lively, Robin McKinley, Megan Whalen Turner, J K Rowling and Dina Rabinovitch. Her work has been nominated for several awards, among them twice as a finalist for the Hugo Award, fourteen times for the Locus Award, seven times for the Mythopeic Award (which she would win twice out of those seven nominations), and twice for a World Fantasy Award, which she would also end up winning in 2007.
