GRACE SARTWELL MASON.
As a writer of popular magazine fiction, Grace
Sartwell Mason needs no introduction. She is already
known to millions of magazine readers, having contributed
stories to the Saturday Evening Post, Good Housekeeping, the
Ladies' Home Housekeeping, the Ladies' Home Journal, Everybody's
Munsey's and numerous other periodicals. However, while
practically every reader of modern fiction is acquainted, in a
way, with Mrs. Mason, not very many really know much
about her, hence the main object of this superficial little
sketch is to introduce you personally to Mrs. Mason, who
is as charming as the books and stories which she so cleverly
writes. According to Who's Who, which has a very
disconcerting habit of recording (actually recording in black
and white one's birth year), Mrs. Mason was born in
Port Allegheny, Pa., on Oct. 31, 1877, and the daughter of
Stephen C. and Rosina (Thompson) Sartwell. In 1902 she
married James Redfern Mason of Birmingham, England, but
evidently Mrs. Mason prefers the shores of her own
country, for her present home is Carmel-By-the-Sea, Cal.
"The Shadow of Rosalie Byrnes," which is the latest work from
the pen of this gifted writer, is very disappointing and not at
all like Mrs. Mason. The story has a very tawdry
plot, the "shadow" of Rosalie Byrnes being the evil life of her
sister, which threatened to blast romance and all in her life
that was worth while, and the book generally gives one the
impression of having been "slapped" together. However,
persons who pick up their reading as they do their fancy work,
will no doubt enjoy it.
