Welcome!

Who is this Nancy E. Dunne, you may ask?

Certified American sign language interpreter. Former American expat living in the UK. Prone to fits of hyperbole, passion, and occasional melancholy. Thrives on insomnia, goldfish crackers, and a looming deadline. Author of the Orana Chronicles (including the Nature Walker Trilogy), the Proud Racer series, and the Clobberpaws series. Six-time Nanowrimo winner and twelve-time Camp Nanowrimo winner who clearly values writing far more than sleep.

Nancy lives and works in the Upstate area of South Carolina with her Irish Wolfhounds, Bryn and Ciaragh, her terrier mix, Willow, and her husband, Simon. Nancy is a nationally certified American Sign Language/English interpreter and in her free time, she fancies herself an author. She also spends many weekends working at the Georgia and Carolina Renaissance Festivals with the group she helped to found, The Hounds of East Fairhaven.

Her Orana Chronicles series has already been met with acclaim via its first novel, Wanderer: Origin of the Nature Walker, which is available exclusively through Amazon.com. The second book in the Nature Walker trilogy, Tempest: Fall of the Nature Walker, was released in February of 2018 followed by Guardian: Rise of the Nature Walker due out in June of 2018. All of the Orana Chronicles are currently available to read for free via Kindle Unlimited.

The Proud Racer series, her first published more than a decade ago, follows the lives of her ‘Proud Racers,’ her retired racing greyhounds, told in their own words. The first four books in the series are now available in one volume, with the fifth book, An American Greyhound in Yorkshire, available as a stand-alone novel.

The Clobberpaws series tells the tale of her Irish Wolfhound, Bryn (Our Bryndled Beastie, CGC), in Bryn’s own words. The second book in that series is due out around August of 2018. All books in the Clobberpaws series are and will in future be available to read for free on Kindle Unlimited.

Wanderer: Origin of the Nature Walker

This story makes me think of a D&D or other RPG campaign come to life. There are surprises, adventures, and quirky characters that make you feel as if you know them. Gin is a fantastic character and when I reached the end of the book I wanted to know what more was in store for her. Luckily, the sequel is already out. This is a great read.

Wanderer: Origin of the Nature Walker

This story has all the fun and fantasy of D&D or Pathfinder and you can enjoy it while avoiding railroading GMs, cheeto fingers touching your precious players’ guide, and the jitters that come with consuming too much of that sweet, sweet mountain dew.
But all joking aside, I had a great time reading this book. The story and characters often don’t do what I expected and it kept me on my toes. I read the first half over the course of a month and a half or so, and finished the second half in about a DAY and a half because I was well and truly hooked! If you have a kindle it is well worth the $3,( and I’m strongly considering getting the paper back too because I’m old fashioned…) and I’m eagerly awaiting the sequel! Definitely worth the Read!
