Collins White Circle Authors Part IX

Part IX of this post will discuss three more of the 78 authors who had a single book published by Wm. Collins Sons & Co. Canada Ltd in their White Circle imprint. 

The Square of Many Colours was first published in 1948 (London: Wm. Collins). I can find nothing about the author other than she did write other romance novels.

She published over 40 other novels.
