In the 1940s, Julie Campbell was running her own literary agency when Western Publishing put out a call for talented authors to write mystery series for kids. Julie proposed the Trixie Belden series and wrote the first 6 titles herself, but books 7-39 were written by a variety of writers all under the pseudonym Kathryn Kenny. Michael Koelsch works in many different styles for many different markets, including advertising, entertainment, and publishing. He recently received a Silver Medal from the Society of Illustrators, NY.
