About the Author

Carolyn Keene was the pseudonym that Mildred Wirt Benson and Walter Karig used to write Nancy Drew books. The idea of Nancy Drew came from Edward Stratemeyer in 1929. He also had other series, that included the Hardy Boys, but he died in 1930 before the Nancy Drew series became famous. His mostrar mais daughters, Harriet and Edna, inherited his company and maintained Nancy Drew having Mildred Wirt Benson, the original Carolyn Keene, as the principal ghostwriter. During the Depression, they asked Benson to take a pay cut and she refused, which is when Karig wrote the books. Karig's Nancy Drew books were Nancy's Mysterious Letter, The Sign of the Twisted Candles, and Password to Larkspur Lane. He was fired from writing more books because of his refusal to honor the request that he keep his work as Carolyn Keene a secret. He allowed the Library of Congress to learn of his authorship and his name appeared on their catalog cards. Afterwards, they rehired Benson and she wrote until her last Nancy Drew book (#30) was written in 1953, Clue of the Velvet Mask. Harriet and Edna Stratemeyer also contributed to the Nancy Drew series. Edna wrote plot outlines for several of the early books and Harriet, who claimed to be the sole author, had actually outlined and edited nearly all the volumes written by Benson. The Stratemeyer Syndicate had begun to make its writers sign contracts that prohibited them from claiming any credit for their works, but Benson never denied her writing books for the series. After Harriet's death in 1982, Simon and Schuster became the owners of the Stratemeyer Syndicate properties and in 1994, publicly recognized Benson for her work at a Nancy Drew conference at her alma mater, the University of Iowa. Now, Nancy Drew has several ghostwriters and artists that have contributed to her more recent incarnations. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

This author is a nom de plume of the several authors of the Nancy Drew and The Dana Girls series. It is a pseudonym owned originally by the Stratemeyer Syndicate (now a name used by Simon and Schuster). Authors of books in the former series include Mildred Wirt Benson, Harriet Adams, James Duncan Lawrence, Walter Karig, Nancy Axelrad, Priscilla Doll, Charles Strong, Alma Sasse, Wilhelmina Rankin, George Waller, Jr., Margaret Scherf, and Susan Wittig Albert. Authors of books in the latter series include Leslie McFarlane, Mildred Wirt Benson, and Harriet Adams.
Note that Caroline Quine is the Dutch and French name of this author.

Please do not combine the individual authors with Carolyn Keene; They may have written under the name Carolyn Keene, but many of them also wrote other books under their own name.

Image credit: Harriet (Stratemeyer) Adams was head of the Stratemeyer Syndicate (running it with her sister, Edna) from her father's death in 1930 until her own death in 1982. She wrote many of the books in the Nancy Drew series, in addition to writing outlines, editing, and revising many of the Syndicate works.

An average story that probably would have been better if I didn't read the second ND Diaries, "Strangers on a Train" first. I didn't realize Strangers was a sequel to this one. I'm glad this wasn't the very first ND Diaries I ever read cause this case was pretty bland. There are better Diaries mysteries out there. Riverboat Roulette (Vol 8) is my favorite so far.

Enjoyed this one quite a bit. Second time reading Ghost of Grey Fox Inn, but that was several years ago. Still, I somewhat remembered the villains as I was rolling along in the book. But that didn't deter from the fun. It was an easy read, and (spoiler alert!) I loved the addition of hidden passages in the inn. This is one of the better Diaries books.

This was a pretty quick read but I admit that I also didn't want to put it down. I was quite anxious and this book did a good job of distracting me!

I didn't have too many thoughts while reading this, but one of the main thoughts came from the very first chapter. I think I've read too much clichéd shit because I kept waiting for Nancy to feel or act jealous every time Ned complimented Payton, which he did A LOT. I was pleasantly surprised and happy that that didn't happen.

As I was reading, I zeroed in on my own suspect pretty early on. I don't know if I just had a lucky guess or if it was obvious in the book but I ended up being right.

Overall, this is a fun and quick read for mystery fans and, of course, fans of Nancy Drew.

!! (SKIP THIS LINE TO AVOID THE SPOILER) !! - I felt like the culprit was Payton 👀)
