Mildred Wirt Benson, aka Carolyn Keene, (1905-2002) published Nancy Drew: The Secret of the Old Clock in 1930. Benson authored the first 23 Nancy Drew books.

I have read a few of the original series and some of the more contemporary versions as well as Junior novels. We’ve seen all the movies and I’m sure at some point I saw the TV show (along with the Hardy Boys). If you have never played one of the 33 Nancy Drew Adventures games by Her Interactive–you are missing out! I stumbled upon #13 Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon by accident one Christmas and we’ve been hooked ever since! Secret of the Old Clock was released as the 12th game in the series.

I am married to a member of the U.S. Merchant Marine. Specifically, married to a Chief Engineer. Thus the name Snipe Wife. While in some circles "Snipe" is a derogatory term for engineers, I use it with pride and affection. Ours is not a unique situation but it is far less common than most. This is for everyone who asks me what is the Merchant Marine and how do I handle the "life."
