In case you've been living in a cave for several years, Diana Gabaldon is the writer of the OUTLANDER series--a breathtaking (and ongoing) collection of books about a WWII field nurse who travels through time and meets a Scottish outlaw/laird and . . . . Honestly, there's no way to make this sound good in fewer than 1,000 words. Fortunately, Diana's first book in the series runs over 300,000 words, and her latest WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART'S BLOOD (the 8th in the series) runs over 450,000. And verra fine words they are. I think it's no exaggeration to say there are fans all over the world who hang on each one of them, not to mention the beautifully rendered incarnation of the story on the STARZ channel.
Her fans often ask her for books she enjoys reading, and so she has compiled them into what she lovingly terms the "Methadone List" to help Outlander "addicts" maintain themselves between books. I was utterly delighted to find my own GOD-THING added to that list on Diana's Facebook today!

I admit I felt seasick with delight--not to mention a little honest-to-goodness anxiety--when I saw it. But I couldn't be more grateful, or humbled, by getting a nod from one of my major literary inspirations.
