Traci asked Diana Gabaldon:

I'm in training to be a Master Herbalist. Claire has really sparked a intrest in herbs for myself. You have some very unique procdures and herbs used for healing. Could you point me in the direction to where you found your research for these? I would love to read more on these. Thank you.

Diana Gabaldon Can do better than that. My very helpful (and long-suffering ) assistant entered all the bibliographic information for the 2200 books of my core research collection into LibraryThing. Go to, and type my name in the "keyword" search box. You'll see everything that I entered, or that other people entered, mentioning me. Then you can refine the search with "herbal," and see everything that's on my shelves in that category.
