On this day 9th July 1901Barbara Cartland was born in Edgbaston, Birmingham.
Barbara Cartland wrote more than 500 books during her lifetime! What an achievement I don’t think I have even got 100 books in my head. This makes her the third-best-selling fiction author of all time (estimated 1 billion copies sold). I find this really amazing.
Nearly always dressed in a shade of pink this lady was known for the many romantic books that she wrote, when you look at the photos of Barbara they scream romance to you, well they do to me.
