“It Could Be Worse”
On her birthday, Diana posted a poignant excerpt from THE FIERY CROSS on her blog, which features tender moments between Jamie and Claire.
And read an essay written in 1999, “Myth and Mountain Birthdays.“ Diana shares the extraordinary love story of her mother and father, including her birth in northern Arizona.
Happy Birthday, Diana!
Best Wishes for 2019… and Sad News
On January 2, Diana sent her Best Wishes to her readers for the New Year in a blog post. But she also shared some sad news.
It’s a short Advent season this year, Christmas coming so soon after the Fourth Sunday, but we are the more expectant in our anticipation, and deeper in our gratitude for the blessings of home and family. My 2018 holiday blogs:
The Third Day of Advent (December 17, 2018), which features an excerpt from THE FIERY CROSS.
The Fourth Day of Advent (December 23, 2018), which features an excerpt from THE SCOTTISH PRISONER.
And you may enjoy my blog entry about the Fourth Sunday from six years ago, too:
The Fourth Day of Advent (December 23, 2012), which features an excerpt from WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART’S BLOOD.
May the blessings of the season be with you and yours!
Outlander TV Series Milestone!
December 23, 2018
And how better to celebrate than to watch Episode 408—“Wilmington”—and discuss it with your friends?
So put aside your present-wrapping for a moment and enjoy the latest Happening (and quite a LOT happens in this one. Boy, Howdy, as my good friend Walt Longmire is prone to say…).
As always, ANY opinion is welcome, and naturally everyone will be civil and kind in their reception of opinions differing from their own, because it’s the season of peace and good will—and because we are Outlander readers and fans (and hence, literate, well-educated, compassionate and considerate).
Newest Excerpts From BEES
My newest posted excerpts (aka “Daily Lines”) from GO TELL THE BEES THAT I AM GONE are:

Book Nine of the Outlander Series (“BEES”)
GO TELL THE BEES THAT I AM GONE (aka “BEES”) will be the ninth book in my OUTLANDER series of major novels, which focus on Jamie Fraser and Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser. I am currently working on the writing and historical research for this new novel.
Read “Daily Lines” (excerpts) from this novel via my official webpage for GO TELL THE BEES THAT I AM GONE. Excerpts are listed by their temporary titles, which help describe what each is about, but are not chapter titles for the new book or anything like that.
In the image at right, I am celebrating Thanksgiving 2017 with my grandson and family pups.
