by | Dec 17, 2018 | 0 comments

The Secret Syndicate behind Nancy Drew and the mystery of Carolyn Keene, the author who never existed.

According to JSTOR Daily “the adventures of Nancy Drew, perhaps the best-known girl detective in children’s literature whose adventures spanned decades, was the brain child of Edward Stratemeyer who conceived the ideas for Nancy in the 1920s. Not an author himself, Stratemeyer and his publishing syndicate hired a series of ghost writer to bring Nancy to life. The full story is laid bare in this fascinating post.
