Lord John Grey is a man at the centre of the political upheavals that rocked Britain in the mid-18th Century. The Jacobites are still a threat, and the old enemy, France, is ready and willing to exploit the situation to its own advantage. London, Edinburgh and Paris are hotbeds of espionage, intrigue and murder. Lord John, having been removed from London for some time, appears to be above the plotting and does not appear to have any allegiance to one clique or another. So when murder happens, and seems to be the result of French espionage, he is the one who seems best placed to be able to unravel the knots- But who is John Grey, where do his allegiances lie, and who, in the long run, will he follow and serve?

    Diana Gabaldon

    Diana Gabaldon is the author of the award-winning, #1 NYT-Bestselling Outlander novels, described by Salon magazine as â??the smartest historical sci-fi adventure-romance story ever written by a science Ph.D. with a background in scripting â??Scrooge McDuckâ?? comics.â??

    The adventure began in 1991 with the classic Outlander  (â??historical fiction with a Moebius twistâ??), has continued through seven more New York Times-bestselling novelsâ?? Dragonfly in Amber, Voyager, Drums of Autumn, The Fiery Cross, A Breath of Snow and Ashes ,An Echo in the Bone, and Written in My Own Heart's Blood, with more than twenty-six million copies in print worldwide. 

    The series is published in 26 countries and 23 languages, and includes a nonfiction (well, relatively) companion volume, The Outlandish Companion, which provides details on the settings, background, characters, research, and writing of the first novels in the series. Gabaldon (itâ??s pronounced â??GAA-bull-dohnâ??â??rhymes with â??stoneâ??) has also written several books in a sub-series featuring Lord John Grey (a major minor character from the main series): Lord John and The Private Matter,  Lord John And The Brotherhood Of The Blade, Lord John and the Hand of Devils, and Lord John and the Scottish Prisoner.

    Returning to her comic-book roots, she has also written a graphic novel titled The Exile (set within the Outlander universe and featuring the main characters from Outlander), but told from the viewpoint of Jamie Fraser and his godfather, Murtagh. The graphic novel is illustrated by Hoang Nguyen, and published by Del-Rey.

    The eighth and most recent major novel in the Outlander series, Written in My Own Heart's Blood, made its debut as number one on the New York Times bestseller list. 

    Dianaâ??s current writing projects include the ninth major novel in the Outlander series, as yet untitled, and a second volume of The Outlandish Companion. She is also serving as a Co-Producer and advisor for the Outlander TV series produced by the Starz network and Tall Ship Productions, which is based on her novels.

    Diana and her husband, Douglas Watkins, have three adult children and live mostly in Scottsdale, Arizona.
