Cathie Dunn

Cathie Dunn is a writer of award-winning Historical Fiction and Romance.


Following on from her early experiences as a critique partner, well over a decade ago, she began to review novels she enjoyed reading. To that effect, she set up a – now defunct – blog to share her thoughts with readers.


In around 2009, Cathie joined the Historical Novel Society as a reviewer, and was thrilled when her first submitted review made it to ‘Editor’s Choice’. She reviewed Historical Fiction titles for the HNS for several years.


Cathie has been an active book reviewer for a number of blog tour providers on both sides of the Atlantic for the last eight years, and she has also posted personal reviews to her own blogs. She enjoys reading a wide range of fiction, from Historical Romance to Mysteries to Contemporary Thrillers, although Historical Fiction remains her big love.


Cathie lives in the south of France with her husband, two cats and a rescue dog.
