Nancy Drew Miscellaneous

Nancy Drew is a book character with several series; and new stories have been added for 78+ years. In every series Nancy changes slightly; but is always the same has-her-head-stuck-in-a-mystery girl we all love. The series was first written by a woman named Mildred W. Benson under the pen name Carolyn Keene in 1920′s-30′s. Several hundred writers and books later Nancy is just as popular and everyone is always on the lookout for a new book. However, every-once and a while publishing of new books slacks off.

Nancy’s friends Bess Marvin and George Frayne appear in book 3 and Ned Nickerson in book 7.

Nancy Drew and her father Carson Drew live in a large town/small city called River Heights. It got it’s name from the large river that runs alongside it; ‘The Muskoka River’. Nancy’s mother died when she was three and as been taken care of by The Drew’s housekeeper Hannah Gruen ever since. Always trotting along with her is best chums George Fayne (really Georgia but she loves her nickname) and Bess Marvin . Both girls are cousins but they are opposites to an extreme. Still, they get along very well (most of the time).


Main Characters:
