New Ambassador - Diana Gabaldon
"Dogs are pure love." - Diana Gabaldon
Diana Gabaldon is the author of the award-winning, #1 NYT-bestselling Outlander novels, described by Salon magazine as “the smartest historical sci-fi adventure-romance story ever written by a science Ph.D. with a background in scripting “Scrooge McDuck” comics.”
The adventure began in 1991 with the classic Outlander (“historical fiction with a Moebius twist”), has continued through six more New York Times-bestselling novels - Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, Drums of Autumn, The Fiery Cross, A Breath of Snow and Ashes, An Echo in the Bone, with nineteen million copies in print worldwide, and with an eight, Written In My Own Heart's Blood, in the pipeline.
The series is published in 29 countries and 26 languages, and includes a nonfiction (well, relatively) companion volume, The outlandish Companion, and a graphic novel, The Exile. Diana has also written several books in a sub-series featuring Lord John Grey (a major minor character from the main series).
Along the way the Outlander series has spawned a concept CD, Outlander: The Musical, while Starz is currently developing a cable-TV series. She and her husband, Douglas Watkins, have three adult children and two Dachshunds (JJ and Homer) and live mostly in Scottsdale, Arizona.
