About Karen Rutledge
I’m an Obsessenach who found Outlander through the STARZ TV show in 2016 after living under a graduate school rock during Season 1 and most of 2. I binged and began making my way through Diana Gabaldon’s captivating books which have what every good story needs – compelling characters, intrigue, danger, passion, plot twists and kilts. I fell in love - fast and hard - and, as new love often does, it inspired transformation. Amazingly, the stars aligned to support a course change and I left a longtime corporate gig, was accepted into the Outlander Cast fanmily and moved from the US Southwest to the East Coast. I now have time for exercise (highly recommend My Peak Challenge), to explore creative pursuits, travel and spend time with my growing family and friends. My love and thanks go out to all these lovely people who kindly tolerate my obsession and support my new goal – find creative ways to help make the world a better place to live.

I’ve decided that my Outlander obsessive tendencies might actually be scientific. Just hear me out. Studying scenes from the STARZ TV show has improved my critical thinking skills. Yes, really, it’s possible. Just ask author Amy Herman who wrote Visual Intelligence to help people do just that. It’s science. Seriously, science. Somewhere in my obsessive re-watching that began in 2016, I realized […]
This 2017 Droughtlander has us all hanging by a teeny, tiny thread. Obsessenachs around the globe are trying to pass the time to the September premiere by: • re-watching, • re-reading, • looking for other time-worthy books, • hanging with the cast, • celebrating World Outlander Day, and • swigging every last dram on social media, desperate for any Season 3 tidbits […]
Diana Gabaldon makes reference to “trust” more than 60 times in the first two books of the Outlander series alone. (Trust me, I used Kindle Search to count.) It appears in all manner of references, like this simple-yet-powerful declaration Jamie makes to Claire in Outlander:“I decided to trust you instead.” Considering that trust is defined […]
