Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Annie Shepherd Swan CBE (July 8, 1859 - June 17, 1943) was a Scottish writer, journalist, novelist and short story writer. Although used her maiden name for most of her literary career, Swan also wrote under the pen names David Lyall and later Mrs Burnett-Smith. She was a highly popular writer of romantic fiction for young women during the Victorian era and published more than 200 novels, serials, short stories and other works of fiction from 1878 to her death in 1943. Many of her stories appeared in prominent magazines of the period, among these The Woman at Home and The People's Friend, which she long regarded as the mainstay of her writing career. She was one of the earliest female authors to contribute to women's magazines, especially when they were first becoming popular during the mid-to late 19th century, and later became an influential figure in the industry. Because of her dominance over the Women at Home, editor-in-chief W.R. Nicoll often called it Annie Swan's Magazine. She later became editor of the magazine from 1893 to 1917.show more
