"In offering the public this happy little autobiography, Miss Brazil yields to the urgent demand of numerous readers who regard her as not only a favourite authoress, but as a friend in the truest sense of the word. Here the friend reveals herself- the writer slips away into a pleasant background of home life from which the Miss Brazil of to-day quite naturally emerges" says a publishing blurb. General bio info > Angela Brazil (pronounced 'brazzle') wrote nearly fifty schoolgirl novels & was arguably the first author of girls' books to write her stories from the characters' point of view - and the first to write entertaining rather than instructional stories. She believed in writing musing and enjoyable tales in which the characters acted like normal human beings. Each story stands on its own, distinct from all the others. Her books are filled with well-delineated characters. Angela was born on November 30, 1868, in Preston, Lancashire, England. Her parents were quite well off & had 3 kids already. Angela's mother decided that Angela was going to be sent to a local private ladies school that encouraged pupils in art, literature and music. Following her father's death, Angela and her mother took to seeing much of Europe, & for a time Angela looked after her brother, Walter, & she spent her remaining years as Walter's housekeeper. Angela was extremely civic-minded and involved herself in many local charities and clubs.
