About the Author
Diana Gabaldon is the author of the award-winning, #1 New York Times best-selling 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 seven more New York Times best-selling novels, with more than twenty-eight million copies in print worldwide.
Diana is serving as a Co-Producer and advisor for the popular Outlander TV series, produced by the Starz network and Tall Ship Productions and distributed by Sony International, which is based on her novels. She has written a script for an episode of the series, also. Her main current writing project is the ninth major novel in the Outlander series, Go Tell The Bees That I Am Gone.
Dr. Gabaldon holds three degrees in science: Zoology, Marine Biology, and a Ph.D. in Quantitative Behavioral Ecology, (plus an honorary degree as Doctor of Humane Letters, which entitles her to be “Diana Gabaldon, Ph.D., D.H.L.” She has written scientific articles and textbooks, worked as a contributing editor on the MacMillan Enclyclopedia Of Computers, founded the scientific-computation journal Science Software Quarterly, and has written numerous comic-book scripts for Walt Disney. None of this has anything whatever to do with her novels, but there it is. Diana and her husband, Douglas Watkins, have three adult children and live mostly in Scottsdale, Arizona.
