Last week saw the long-awaited launch of the 9th book in the global smash hit Outlander series, the first since the TV show aired. Go Tell The Bees That I Am Gone is a time travelling romantic drama series set in 17th Century Scottish Highlands, and we are thrilled that author Diana Gabaldon is here to talk about it…

It’s a huge year for Diana Gabaldon as it not only marks 30 years since her very first Outlander novel, but also the publication of her latest in the series, Go Tell The Bees That I Am Gone.

Here she tells My Weekly where she would like to live in Scotland, her plans for her next publication, the challenges for the characters in the latest book and what part of the writing process she enjoys best.
