Dana Chamblee Carpenter

Dana Chamblee Carpenter is the author of THE DEVIL'S BIBLE, the sequel to BOHEMIAN GOSPEL, a supernatural historical thriller that won the 2014 Killer Nashville Claymore Award and that Publishers Weekly called “a deliciously creepy debut.” Edgar Award nominee and author of BLISS HOUSE and THE ABANDONED HOUSE, Laura Benedict says, “Look out, Dan Brown. Dana Chamblee Carpenter is the angels' new champion in the timeless battle between darkness and light. THE DEVIL'S BIBLE is not just a book, but a shining, vibrant tale for the ages --- told with history and heart --- that will have readers both weeping and cheering not only for brave Mouse, but for all of humanity.”

Carpenter’s award winning short fiction has appeared in The Arkansas Review, Jersey Devil Press, Maypop and, most recently, in the anthology, KILLER NASHVILLE NOIR: Cold Blooded.

She teaches at a private university in Nashville, TN, where she lives with her husband and two children.

The Devil’s Bible. Once considered an eighth wonder of the world, the ancient book is shrouded in mystery. No one knows who wrote it or where it was written. Even dry-boned scholars whisper about the secrets hidden in the book. But no one knows the truth --- no one except Mouse. She’s been running from the truth at the heart of the Devil’s Bible for so long that no one even knows her name anymore. She calls herself Emma Nicholas --- a normal name for a normal college professor living a normal life. But all of it is a lie, and, when forces emerge that threaten to expose her, Mouse has no choice but to take flight once more.

Thirteenth-century Bohemia is a dangerous place for a girl, especially one as odd as Mouse, born with unnatural senses and an uncanny intellect. When young King Ottakar shows up at the Abbey wounded by a traitor's arrow, Mouse breaks church law to save him and then agrees to accompany him back to Prague as his personal healer. Caught in the undertow of court politics at the castle, Ottakar and Mouse find themselves drawn to each other as they work to uncover the threat against him and to unravel the mystery of her past.
