The Woman's Part

Annie S[hepherd] Swan

Annie S Swan (1859-1943) was a Scottish journalist, novelist and story writer who wrote this novel and The Stepmother under her maiden name, but also wrote as 'David Lyall': see The Consolation Bureau and The Lost House, also with dust jackets designed by Blampied. She made her literary debut for the magazine Woman at Home which she eventually edited from 1893 to 1917. She wrote over 250 romantic stories under her own name and over 80 titles under her pseudonym 'David Lyall'. As Mrs Burnett Smith, her married name, she supported the cause of temperance and during the First World War worked for the Ministry of Food. She was the only female founder of the Scottish Nationalist Party. A more detailed article about her can be found here.
