Missing Millie Benson : The Secret Case of the Nancy Drew Ghostwriter and Journalist Hardback

Part of the Biographies for Young Readers series

Description

Growing up in Ladora, Iowa, Mildred "Millie" Benson had ample time to develop her imagination and sense of adventure.

While still a journalism graduate student at the University of Iowa, Millie began writing for the Stratemeyer Syndicate, which published the phenomenally popular Hardy Boys series, among others.

Soon, Millie was tapped for a new series starring amateur sleuth Nancy Drew, a young, independent woman not unlike Millie herself.

Under the pen name Carolyn Keene, Millie wrote the first book, The Secret of the Old Clock, and twenty-two other Nancy Drew Mystery Stories.

In all, Millie wrote more than a hundred novels for young people. Millie was also a journalist for the Toledo Times and the Toledo Blade.

At sixty-two, she obtained her pilot's license. Follow the clues throughout Missing Millie to discover the story of this ghostwriter, journalist, and adventurer.
