Right - now how many of you remember these books? Did you ever read them? I used to love them as a teen. I think I'll have to get one to read for a trip down memory lane. The author was Mazo de la Roche. I loved books where you had a whole raft of characters that you could meet again and again with each subsequent saga. Just like a soap opera. The whole idea of a family living on an estate in a family house with that whole clan thing going on was the kind of life I always saw as 'perfect'.
I see that her real name was Mazo Roche but that she added the 'de la' . This set me wondering as to what name I would like to be known as an author. Penelope de la Southwell doesn't have quite the right ring to it. How about:
- Canola de la Colyford
- Olive de la Oyl [it does flow off the tongue]
- Corinne de la Beer
- Theresa che Green
- Tabitha de la Ware
- Penelope Deadly
I can see I'll have to give this subject some deep consideration. Until I have a name how can I write a book?
