FAMOUS ESSEX AUTHORS
You haver never heard of
by Dee Gordon
Admittedly, there are some names within these pages that you will have heard of. But there are literally dozens of names that have been, sadly, forgotten over time.
You may recognise some book titles, however (The French Lieutenant’s Woman? One Hundred and One Dalmatians?).
Some of the romance writers featured may not have famous names or even famous “titles” but they were so prolific and popular that they deserve to be foregrounded for their contribution to the world of books.These earlier generations of writers set thestage for those current Essex writers that feature on the bestseller lists. It has also been important for Essex to include big guns such as Austen, Shakespeare and Dickens, however tenuous the links in such cases!
