Who we are

Diane Duane

The Owl Springs Partnership is the husband-and-wife writing team of Belfast-born Peter Morwood and New York native Diane Duane, now resident in Ireland for nearly three decades.

Between us we have more than half a century of combined experience in the writing of novels and screenplays, as well as comics, computer games, and other allied media. We’ve both spent time on the New York Times Best-Seller List, and we’ve picked up various awards for our writing (collaborative and solo) over the years.

We live in the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains in the Republic of Ireland, not far from Dublin, and share our two hundred year-old cottage with various severely overworked computers. Here we write, enjoy the gorgeous countryside, and spend our spare time pursuing total galactic domination and cussing out the broadband when it goes offline.



What We Do

Our experience includes a broad range of formats and media genres, from writing for major licensed properties to extensive work in our own universes.

Singly and in collaboration we've written both original work and "works for hire" for some of the biggest names in entertainment -- everything from short stories and novels to comics and computer games -- and we've done all kinds of screenwriting, from animation to serial drama to event television to theatrical features.

And somehow we've managed to have fun the whole time...
