The Amazing Interlude, Mary Roberts Rinehart

Mary Roberts Rinehart

Biography of Mary Roberts Rinehart

Mary Roberts Rinehart was the highest paid author in the United States during the first fifty years of the 20th Century. This status comes not only from income derived from book sales, but magazine articles, short stories, and plays. Her books were often best-sellers and she is called the “Agatha Christie” of the United States for her many, humorous mystery novels.

Isn't she beautiful?
I love learning about books and other treasures I buy for the store.
Mary Roberts Rinehart is no exception.
I have almost a whole set of her books at the store.

I miss doing the research when something new would come in, didn't matter if it was mine or one of the dealers.
I am going to look further into this lady. Sounds interesting.
