Diana Wynne Jones was a British author of fantasy, mostly of the Young Adult variety. Noted for her intricate plotting with frequent uses of ThePlan, high-energy dialogue, and relentlessly [[{{DeadpanSnarker}} British]] [[{{Lampshading}} wit]]. She is probably best known for ''Literature/HowlsMovingCastle'' (which was turned into a very successful [[Anime/HowlsMovingCastle animated movie]] by Creator/HayaoMiyazaki), and her ''Literature/{{Chrestomanci}}'' series, but she has an extensive catalog of novels and short stories.

She was diagnosed with cancer but decided to stop chemotherapy in 2010, and died in March 2011. But her career still wasn't quite over, as in 2013 another of her manuscripts was discovered, and prepared for publication.
