 ?? Diana Gabaldon

Diana Gabaldon is the highly acclaimed American author of the international bestselling Outlander series of novels. 

Before beginning to write fiction Dr. Gabaldon was a university professor with degrees in Zoology and Marine Biology, and a Ph.D. in Quantitative Behavioral Ecology. As a research professor, she knew her way around a library so, when she decided to try writing historical fiction (pre-internet), it was easy for her.

After seeing an episode of Doctor Who in which the Doctor's companion was a Scot from 1745, it gave her the initial inspiration for her main male character, James Fraser. She later added a 20th-century WWII nurse named Claire Randall, who travels back in time to mid-18th century Scotland and then meets and falls in love with Jamie.

Gabaldon's books merge multiple genres, featuring detailed elements of European history, romance with Highland warriors, modern medicine, fantasy, adventure and science fiction.

The Outlander novels were made into an acclaimed TV series starring Sam Heughan as Jamie Fraser and Caitriona Balfe as Claire. The series has now been renewed for a fifth and sixth season.

Diana lives with her husband and dogs in Scotsdale, Arizona and is currently at work on her ninth Outlander novel, Go Tell the Bees that I am Gone, which is due to be released sometime in 2019.
