Diana Gabaldon is the New York Times bestselling author of the wildly popular Outlander novels, on which the mega-hit Outlander television series is based: Outlander, Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, Drums of Autumn, The Fiery Cross, A Breath of Snow and Ashes (for which she won a Quill Award and the Corine International Book Prize), An Echo in the Bone, and, most recently, Written in My Own Heart’s Blood.
She’s also written the related Lord John Grey books— Lord John and the Private Matter, Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade, Lord John and the Hand of Devils, and The Scottish Prisoner; a collection of novellas, Seven Stones to Stand or Fall; two works of nonfiction, The Outlandish Companion Volumes 1 and 2; and the Outlander graphic novel The Exile.
Beyond being remarkably prolific as a writer, Gabaldon holds three degrees in science—Zoology, Marine Biology, and a Ph.D in Behavioral Ecology (plus an honorary degree as Doctor of Humane Letters)—and spent a dozen years as a university professor with an expertise in scientific computation before beginning to write fiction. She has written scientific articles and textbooks, worked as a contributing editor on the MacMillan Encyclopedia of Computers, founded the scientific computation journal Science Software Quarterly, and has written numerous comic book scripts for Walt Disney. She lives in Scottsdale, Arizona, with her husband.
