Authors who may appeal to fans of Diana Gabaldon include Karen Marie Moning, Jean M. Auel and Kate Atkinson. These authors have written books that explore topics similar to those in Diana Gabaldon's popular "Outlander" series, including European history, time travel, romance and sexuality.
Like "Outlander," Karen Marie Moning's "Beyond the Highland Mist" is a time travel romance in which a modern woman is transported by magic to pre-Jacobite Scotland. Though not a romance, Kate Atkinson's "Human Croquet" follows a young woman as she travels through centuries and learns of the curse on her family. Jean M. Auel is known for her "Earth's Children" series. Beginning with "The Clan of the Cave Bear," the speculative historical fiction series tells the story of Ayla, an orphan taken in by a clan in the Paleolithic era. "The Clan of the Cave Bear" is most famous for its frank and unconventional treatment of human sexuality.
