Carola Dunn

in The United Kingdom
November 14, 1946



Carola Dunn is the author of more than 30 Regency romances, as well as 16 mysteries (the Daisy Dalrymple mystery series is set in England in the 1920s). Ms. Dunn was born and grew up in England, where she got a B.A. in Russian and French from Manchester University. She travelled as far as Fiji before returning to settle in California. After 30 years in the US, she says she still sounds as if she arrived a month ago.

Prior to writing, Ms. Dunn’s various jobs included market research, child-care, construction--from foundation trenches to roofing--and writing definitions for a dictionary of science and technology. She wrote her first novel in 1979, a Regency which she sold to Warner Books.

Now living in Eugene, Oregon, Ms. Dunn has a son in Cali

Carola Dunn isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but she does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from her feed.

Left Coast Crime

Next month I'm going to Left Coast Crime in San Diego (which happily happens to be the area where my son and grandkids live). I'm going to be on a panel with Rhys Bowen, Catriona Macpherson et al about the continuing appeal in the US of British mysteries.
If you have any thoughts on the subject, please let me know!
