Karen, thanks for the shout out! And as an Outlander fan, I can't believe I didn't know about your blog. What a ton of fun! And how great that you got to meet Diana herself. Love the pictures.

Carolyn - nice to see you here! Take the time to look around, there's a LOT of information here.

I'm glad you liked the pictures. :-)

Who is Jamie Fraser?

Karen Henry said...

Vanilla:

He's the hero of Diana Gabaldon's OUTLANDER series. 6'4", red hair, amazingly good-looking, great in bed <cough>, basically, irresistible to Diana's female readers (and there are a LOT of them!)

There's a graphic novel coming out on Sept. 21 called THE EXILE, in which Jamie has a major role. Check out Diana Gabaldon's blog for pictures.

Oh, and how could I forget....he's an 18th century Scottish Highlander, so he wears a kilt. <g>

I found your blog a few weeks ago and have so enjoyed it! I only recently (this year) found the Outlander series. Now I have read them all and don't know what to do with myself. :)

One of my friends linked this story on Facebook and I couldn't help but think that this man is a modern day Jamie Fraser, sacrificing his life for his wife and unborn child. (http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/39146785/ns/today-today_people)

I heard about that story a couple of days ago, but didn't make that connection. Wow! You are entirely right.

So glad you've been enjoying my blog!
