Short biography
Constance Noyes Robertson was born in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. As a small child, she went with her family to live in Kenwood, New York, the original home of the Oneida Community, a Perfectionist religious communal society founded in 1847 by her paternal grandfather, John Humphrey Noyes. She attended Dana Hall in Wellesley, Massachusetts, and the University of Wisconsin. In 1918, she married Miles E. Robertson, and the couple took an extended trip around the world and lived in Syndey, Australia, the Far East, and London. They returned to the USA in 1921.

From 1925-1930, she edited a small privately printed magazine.
She published her first novel, Enchanted Avenue, in 1931. Her next book, Five Fatal Letters, published in 1937 under the pseudonym "Dana Scott," won the novel prize at the Bread Loaf Writers Conference. In 1938, she began writing books set in 19th century America, beginning with her first historical novel, Seek No Further. It was followed by Salute to the Hero (1942), Fire Bell in the Night (1944), The Unterrified (1946), The Golden Circle (1951), Six Weeks in March (1953), and Go and Catch a Falling Star (1957). She also wrote three nonfiction books on the history of the Oneida Community.
