About the Author

Acclaimed author Diana Gabaldon grew up in Flagstaff, Arizona, where she continues to spend as much time as she can writing in the comforts of her family home. Most of her time, however, is spent in Scottsdale, Arizona, where she lives with her husband, three children and a large number of animals. She holds a B.S. in Zoology from Northern Arizona University, M.S. in Marine Biology from the University of California, San Diego and a Ph.D. in Ecology from Northern Arizona University. After working for a number of years as a laboratory technician, researcher, ecologist and freelance nonfiction writer, Gabaldon pursued her creative writing passion and penned her first novel, Dragonfly in Amber. Since then, her Outlander Series books have been consistently listed on best-sellers' lists across the country.
