I just watched a really great interview with Diana and didn't find it posted here, so I thought I'd share (hope it's not a repeat, since it is from 2016)

She describes her writing process, starting with what she refers to as a "kernel" of an idea, which was truly amazing to see in action!

We find out that her husband actually said one of Jamie's most romantic lines (IMO) to her ::swoon:: (could anyone guess which one before watching the interview?? ...there's only about a thousand to chose from

At the very end, she shares a more personal account of when she discovered, at the age of 8, that she was meant to write a novel- it actually moved me to tears. Love DG!
Woman was made of Adam's rib; not made out of his head to rule over him, nor out of his feet to be trampled upon by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected, and near his heart to be beloved - Matthew Henry
