Meeting a story teller

Last night my beloved, my friend Cowgirl and I went down to Mountain View to go to a book signing of our favorite author. Diana Gabaldon the author of the Outlander series was in town to talk a little and sign her new book. If you are not familiar with the Outlander series, it is the story of a young woman named Claire who is a nurse in 1945, she and her husband have been apart for most of the last 8 years due to WWII. They go to Scotland on a second honeymoon to get to know each other again and so that the husband can do a little historical research on his family. Claire goes exploring one day and walks thru a broken stone in a circle of stones and comes out the other side, still in Scotland, but in 1743.

"Why is it always about 200 years?"

If you enjoy historical fiction, get a crane and pick up the first book. You won't be sorry.

Anyway, Ms. Galbaldon spoke about the way she came to write these books (kilts played a big part) and how she writes. She is funny, smart and a great story teller.

I have turned quite a few people onto this series, but as much as I might love you, don't ask to borrow my books. Get your own.
