About Frances Hodgson Burnett

Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849 1924) was born in Manchester, England, and immigrated with her family in 1865 to Tennessee, where she lived near Knoxville until her marriage to Dr. S. M. Burnett in 1873. At eighteen, she began publishing her stories in magazines such as "Godey s Lady s Book" and "Scribner s." At twenty-eight, her novel "That Lass o Lowries," based on the colliery life she had known in England, became her first success, but she gained international fame withher children s story" Little Lord Fauntleroy" (1886), a novel about an American boy who becomes heir to an English earldom. Its hero s long curls and velvet suit with lace collar became a popular fashion for little boys and his name lives on as an epithet for overdressed or pompous children. "Little Lord Fauntleroy" was also successfully dramatized, just as a later novel, "Sara Crewe," became the much better-known stage play "The Little Princess "(1905). In 1909, while laying out a garden at her new home on Long Island, Burnett conceived and wrote "The Secret Garden" (1911), her best and most enduring work. The author died in Plandome, New York. Meg Cabot s books for both adults and tweens/teens have included multiple number one "New York Times" best sellers, selling over 25 million copies worldwide. Her Princess Diaries series has been published in more than 38 countries and was made into two hit films by Disney. Cabot s numerous other award-winning books include the Abandon trilogy, the Allie Finkle s Rules for Girls series, and the Heather Wells Mystery series. Lynne Sharon Schwartz, a native of Brooklyn, New York, has published nineteen books of fiction, nonfiction, essays, poetry and translation, including the novels "Rough Strife "(nominated for a National Book Award), "Balancing Acts," "Disturbances in the Field," and "In the Family Way."
