A versatile and prolific author, Josephine Lawrence began her career in journalism, soon branched out to ghostwrite girls' and tots' series under her own name and pseudonymously, then went on to earn national recognition for her adult fiction. When she died in 1978, she had written 33 adult novels and approximately 100 children's books. Despite Lawrence's many publications, biographical information about her remains sparse, scattered among a number of brief articles and reviews of her books. This webpage attempts to remedy that lack of information by providing a detailed bio-bibliography of a noteworthy -- and too often overlooked -- woman writer.
