“If I could say one thing...Read this!” – Colin Dexter Emma, a young and self-contained professor of history, leaves Cambridge for a post in an exclusive university in the USA, intent on finding a long-overlooked 17th century journal. Bound within its pages are secrets that threaten to bring Emma into conflict with the present; but can she discover the truth - and will she believe it? “The sense of growing menace will have readers gripping the edge of their seats. A tense and accomplished debut blending romance with thriller.” – Fay Sampson, author of The Hunted Hare "An impressive debut for a promising new writer. One to watch." – Taylor Holden, author of Waking Ned and The Sense of Paper “I began Mortal Fire one winter evening, with a cup of hot chocolate near at hand. Within a few chapters the chocolate was ignored and had gone cold. C. F. Dunn’s vivid prose holds the reader's attention right to the riveting conclusion.” – Mel Starr, author of The Unquiet Bones
Studying history at university, Claire Dunn then followed a vocational route and, with her husband, founded a specialist school dedicated to the needs of children with Dyslexia, Autism and related language difficulties. Returning to her roots to incorporate elements of history into her stories of romance, mystery and suspense, Claire began writing Mortal Fire - the first in The Secret Of The Journal series - in 2009, winning Gold in the ForeWord Book Of The Year Awards, 2012. She now divides her time between running the school in Kent and writing in Cornwall.
