A K Summer lives in London with her husband and a fussy senior cat. She got the idea for Murder on Corner Rise after many years of working in various universities. The location came while sailing from the Caribbean to the Azores when she saw a map of Corner Searise on the charts.
Corner Rise is a fictional archipelago of islands in the middle of the Atlantic.
There is a real Corner Seamount to the south and west of the Azores but they do not rise above the surface of the sea. Sadly this means that it will not be possible for anyone to visit Corner Rise University for real but the idea of some islands there is, at the least, very romantic.
This is where the actual Corner Seamount is.
