Theresa Charles
#1
I'm not sure what nationality she was, but is anyone familiar with Theresa Charles? My mom and I loved her books back in the gothic days, but could only ever find 3 published by her.

I still have one called "Fairer Than She" and it was my Mom's favorite book. I would love to know more about this author is anyone has any info?

Irene Mossop
born
December 06, 1904 in The United Kingdom

Born in 1904, Irene Maude Mossop was the daughter of solicitor Robert Mossop, and his wife Maude Binford Eyre. She was educated at a private school, and - the early death of her father making it necessary to earn a living - turned to writing at a young age. She married ex-RAF officer Charles John Swatridge in 1934, and moved with him to Middlecombe Farm, near Kingsbridge, Devon, in 1942. In addition to her many girls' school stories, and other children's novels, Mossop also wrote adult romances under a variety of pseudonyms, including: Theresa Charles, Fay Chandos, Leslie Lance, Virginia Storm, and Jan Tempest. She died in 1988.

Thank you so much! I recognize the name Jan Tempest. I had no idea she had written under so many names. I'll have to look for her other books. Wish my Mom was still around...she would have loved knowing this. Thanks again!
