Author Bio
Dorothy Dunnett
Dorothy Halliday Dunnett grew up in Edinburgh, a student of music and art who never had any ambitions to be a writer. She went to work at Britain's Ministry of Information in the 1940s, and in 1946 married the man who was her boss, Alexander Dunnett. The couple lived in Glasgow, where Dorothy was a professional portrait painter. It was her husband who suggested, as a lark, that she begin writing a series of historical novels. Her first attempt, THE GAME OF KINGS, was rejected by British publishers, so she submitted it to G.P. Putnam's Sons in America, where it was published in 1961--the initial novel in the fabulously successful "Lyman Chronicles." Dunnett went on to write other novels in several different series and also wrote mysteries under her maiden name. Widowed in 1998, Dunnett had two sons and two grandchildren.
