The Author is Dr. Diana Gabaldon, who changed her university career to writing. She is now the New York Times bestselling author of the Outlander series, which contemporary consists of eight books but at least one more is expected to be published. Her newest book Written In My Own Heart's Blood was released in June 2014.

Diana's writing takes you deeply to the scenes and people's lives. And the best thing is that every read-through gives you new perspectives and the books can be read again and again. And we also now have Claire's ring in our possession.

The translations in Finnish have been lagging behind. But now we have only a year to wait after the English publication. As Jari started to read the books in 2003, he read the first two novels in Finnish, but then had to buy the next books in English. Also, he found a new dimension in the books with the Scots language, which is not easy to translate into Finnish.
