Diana’s hugely popular Outlander series, set in 18th century Scotland, merges multiple genres, featuring elements of historical fiction, romance, adventure, and science fiction. The first novel in the series was published in 1991 followed by seven additional New York Times hit novels with more than twenty-eight million copies in print world-wide and published in 26 countries in 23 languages, and includes The Outlandish Companion, Volumes One and Two.
A television adaption of the Outlander novels premiered in 2014, with Diana serving as co-producer and advisor, and quickly developed a devoted world-wide audience. She has also written several books in a sub-series featuring characters from the main series and a graphic novel titled The Exile set in the Outlander universe. Diana is in the process of completing the ninth book in the Outlander series, Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone.
Diana holds three degrees in science: Zoology, Marine Biology, and a Ph.D. in Quantitative Behavioural Ecology, and spent a dozen years as a university professor with an expertise in scientific computation before beginning to write fiction. Her varied writing career includes scientific articles and textbooks and numerous comic-book scripts for Walt Disney!
