So I'm A Little Crazy For Scotland

The Highland Games start in two weeks and I'm way excited. I adore all things Scottish (even tried haggis, that's how deep my crazy goes). Last year was my first trip to the games and I wandered about, mouth agape like a kid at Disneyland. I even bought a dirk (a small dagger) with a leather scabbard and a glass hilt. It's no sharper than a letter opener, but I love it. It makes me feel dangerous. Ha!

It's Diana Gabaldon's fault that I love Scotland, and Aiden MacRae is the manifestation of my adoration of Caledonia (and men in kilts). Read Between and maybe you'll fall in love with it, too!



What are you crazy about? C'mon, don't be shy!
