Prequel Book (Untitled)


Once the story of Jamie Fraser and Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser has come to an end, perhaps in Book Ten of my OUTLANDER series of novels, will there be more?

Yes, I am writing at least one prequel novel. This new book will include the story of Jamie Fraser‘s parents.

Merry Christmas, 2022… The First Excerpt!

On December 22, 2022, I shared the first excerpt (aka “Daily Lines”) from this new novel, “A Bird In The Hand” (a temporary title for the excerpt).

Excerpts are always accessible by clicking on the temporary titles listed at upper right. New ones will be added as they are posted, not necessarily in the order they will appear in the new book.

When Will The OUTLANDER Prequel Be Finished?

I am currently writing this new novel along with Book Ten (as yet untitled) of my Outlander series of novels. No publication date has yet been announced for either one.

“Outlander: Blood of My Blood” Prequel TV Series

Sony and Starz began production of a prequel TV series titled “Blood of My Blood” on January 22, 2024. On February 5, 2024, the four actors chosen to play the parents of Jamie Fraser and Claire Beauchamp Fraser were announced.

“BOB” for short, this new tv series will explore both Jamie”s and Claire’s parents who, of course, lived in different time periods. No doubt the new tv series (BOB) and this book will have a few things in common. <g>
