Carolyn Keene

Carolyn Keene, U.S. writer

(1892 - 1982)

Real name: Harriet Stratemeyer. Carolyn Keene was the pseudonym of the writers who produced the Nancy Drew books as well as the Dana Girls books and a few spin-offs. However, Harriet Stratemeyer Adams (daughter of the series originator, Edward Stratemeyer) wrote these two books (as well as many others). Thus, these birth/death dates are hers.
