About Author

Angela Brazil

Angela Brazil was born on November 30, 1868, and died on March 13, 1947. She was one of the first British writers of "modern schoolgirls' stories," which were written from the point of view of the characters and were meant more for entertainment than to teach morals. Brazil first started writing when she was 10 years old. She and her close childhood friend Leila Langdale made a magazine based on the children's magazine Little Folks, which Brazil loved at the time. There were riddles, short stories, and poems in the "publications'' of the two girls. In their magazines, both girls wrote serials. Brazil's was called "Prince Azib." Brazil wrote Little Folks later in life. She didn't start writing until later in life when she became very interested in Welsh mythology. Angela Brazil is thought to be the first author of girls' school stories who wrote from the student's point of view and whose stories were mostly meant to entertain rather than teach moral lessons.
