Wendy Garrett (March 20, 1953/1956 – March 1, 1998)

Wendy Haley, who published romance and suspence novel also under the pen name of Wendy Garrett, was probably also the ghost writer for some of the Fear Street vampire horror young adult novels by R.L. Stine. For sure she is “credited” in the inside cover of House of Whispers (1996) and Daughters of Silence (1997).

No many other info on her, on the net.

Elizabeth Gilzean (March 1, 1913 – 1995)

As an author for Harlequin Romance, Elizabeth Gilzean published thirteen novels. Her work was primarily focused on the very popular Doctor/Nurse romances. She wrote primarily in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Born in 1913, she also wrote under the pseudonyms Elizabeth Houghton and Mary Hunton. Her real name may have been Houghton Blanchet, though some sources cite Gilzean as her real name. As an author for Harlequin Romance, Elizabeth Houghton published ten novels. As an author for Harlequin Romance, Mary Hunton published three novels.

She was the daughter of Muriel Liffiton. While to many Muriel Liffiton is known only as M. Wylie Blanchet or as Muriel Blanchet, on May 2, 1891, in Montreal, Canada, she was born Muriel Wylie Liffiton. However, she wrote under her married name, having married Geoffrey Orme Blanchet in 1909. So it has been as M. Wylie Blanchet that she has earned a place in Canadian literature as the author of The Curve of Time, an unusual book of travel and adventure.
