Harry Dunn


Harry Dunn, lives in Berkshire with his wife, although he was born in Aberdeen in Scotland. They have two grown up children.

Harry’s writing background began in journalism and he worked for several UK newspapers before joining the Publications Division of the BBC, in 1967.

He accompanied many celebrity authors on promotional tours and tells us that it was celebrity chef, the late Keith Floyd who encouraged him to take up writing himself.

A short story, ‘One Night in Andalusia’ introduces us to Harry’s main character Jack Barclay, a private detective investigating a deceiving husband on behalf of his wife. But, as Jack watches helplessly, his quarry is gunned down in a vicious drive-by shooting! And that is only the first surprise!

Harry’s first full-length novel, featuring Jack Barclay, ‘Smile of the Viper’ was released in 2012 and he tells me that much of it was written right here, where I am based, in Lanzarote, where he finds great inspiration.

Harry’s second book, Forever Evil is now available.

We wish Harry every success with the latest book, and hopefully many more.

Thank you Harry, for a very interesting, entertaining and informative talk to our Writing Group 26 February 2016

Please come and see us again next time you are in Lanzarote.

    Thank you for your invitation to Writers’ End Sue. Much appreciated and I look forward to visiting you and your thriving group of writers. Forever Evil is in it’s final stages of cover design and will be published by Caffeine Nights in the Autumn of 2015. It again features London private investigator Jack Barclay. He is in dire straits this time around!
    I’ll keep in touch with you Sue and may the Canarian sun keep shining!
