I first read Outlander as a young mom over 20 years ago. Okay….I didn’t just read it, I devoured it 5 or 6 times. Every year or so for 20 years, I checked to see if it was being made for the screen. FINALLY two miracles appeared and their names were Ron D. Moore and Maril Davis and they have made all my Outlander dreams come true!

As a solo act, I write this blog designed to make you laugh, think & get through the scary parts! I try to keep it classy and I always try to make you laugh even in the episodes with evil Black Jack Randall.

My husband, Richard, is now hooked on Outlander almost as much as I am.  I write and design the memes and he builds them (sometimes wearing a kilt!!) with me standing behind his chair, breathing down his neck.  We’re on Twitter: @Gracesmom48 (Melissa) and @OutmanderArtist (Richard) We’re on Facebook too, right here:


We create our memes and I write the re-caps with our brilliant, rescue dog, Hickory, by our side. We’ve got two gorgeous grown children (we occasionally tweet their photos because we can’t resist) We live in Texas, but my heart’s in New England. ***Tulach Ard Y’all!

Above is an actual, real-life photo of Richard and me posing near standing stones many years ago before Outlander was even published.  It’s like we were psychic or something!!
