…she finds inspiration and composes a sentence in 90 seconds. She makes it look easy, but we all know it isn’t usually!

At the 2015 When Words Collide event in Calgary, I got to meet her and for the first time, I was all fan-girl tongue-tied and in awe – that’s why I look a bit stunned in the photo. Diana is a lovely woman who has thrilled so many with her Outlander series in print, audio and through the television programs.

Lucky me got to be the crowd-wrangler for her book signing. Folks came in costume, with arms loaded down with well-thumbed volumes. I lost rack of how many photos I took of fans with their favourite author.

She was incredibly gracious, funny and smart.
