Carola Dunn (born 1946) is an English-born American writer of detective fiction. Dunn attended Friend's School in Saffron Walden, and graduated from the University of Manchester.[1][2] She began by writing historical romances but later switched to crime stories. Today she lives and works in Eugene, Oregon. The hero of her crime novels is the Honourable Daisy Dalrymple, a freelance writer, sometimes known as "Miss Daisy". Dalrymple's husband is Detective Chief Inspector Alec Fletcher. He tries, unsuccessfully, to keep her out of crime investigations. His superiors at the Yard are terrified of her meddling but find it difficult to stop her because of her relatively high social position.
