Diana Gabaldon, author of the bestselling “Outlander” series,
will speak at the Fort Vancouver Regional Library Foundation’s
annual Authors & Illustrators Dinner.

Diana Gabaldon had never set foot on a heather-covered hillside in the Scottish Highlands when she wrote her first “Outlander” novel.

Scottish blood doesn’t course through her veins. Her ancestors were English and Mexican-American with a smidgen of German. She lives in Scottsdale, Ariz.

That didn’t stop the 36-year-old biology professor. She has always known she wanted to write novels.

But she didn’t have characters, plot, outline or a time period in mind until she was inspired by an old “Doctor Who” episode. When the doctor picked up Scotsman Jamie McCrimmon in 1745, Gabaldon was struck by the image of the kilt-wearing clansman.

“That’s fetching! Why not write about Scotland in the 18th century and the Jacobite rebellion?” she asked.

It was 1988. Online research hadn’t developed yet, so she visited her library.
