About Author:
Carolyn Keene is a writer pen name that was used by many different people- both men and
women- over the years. The company that was the creator of the Nancy Drew series, the
Stratemeyer Syndicate, hired a variety of writers. For Nancy Drew, the writers used the
pseudonym Carolyn Keene to assure anonymity of the creator.
Edna and Harriet Stratemeyer inherited the company from their father Edward Stratemeyer. Edna
contributed 10 plot outlines before passing the reins to her sister Harriet. It was (aka: ), who
breathed such a feisty spirit into Nancy's character. Mildred wrote 23 of the original 30 Nancy
Drew Mystery Stories, including the first three. It was her characterization that helped make
Nancy an instant hit. The Stratemeyer Syndicate's devotion to the series over the years under the
reins of Harriet Stratemeyer Adams helped to keep the series alive and on store shelves for each
succeeding generation of girls and boys. In 1959, Harriet, along with several writers, began a 25-
year project to revise the earlier Carolyn Keene novels. The Nancy Drew books were condensed,
racial stereotypes were removed, and the language was updated. In a few cases, outdated plots
were completely rewritten.
Other writers of Nancy Drew volumes include Harriet herself, she wrote most of the series after
Mildred quit writing for the Syndicate and in 1959 began a revision of the first 34 texts. The role of
the writer of "Carolyn Keene" passed temporarily to Walter Karig who wrote three novels during
the Great Depression. Also contributing to Nancy Drew's prolific existence were Leslie McFarlane,
James Duncan Lawrence, Nancy Axelrod, Priscilla Doll, Charles Strong, Alma Sasse, Wilhelmina
Rankin, George Waller Jr., and Margaret Scherf.
