Author Bio for McFarlane, Leslie
Leslie McFarlane (October 25, 1902 – September 6, 1977) was a Canadian journalist, novelist, screenwriter, and filmmaker, who is most famous for ghostwriting many of the early books in the very successful Hardy Boys series using the pseudonym Franklin W. Dixon. As a young man he worked in Sudbury, Ontario, as a newspaper reporter, then for a weekly paper in Toronto before taking a job at the Springfield Republican newspaper in Springfield, Massachusetts.
While in the U.S., he replied to a want ad placed by the Stratemeyer Syndicate, and freelanced in 1926 and 1927 as one of the authors using the pseudonym Roy Rockwood to write seven of the Dave Fearless serialized mystery novels. This led to his involvement with the Hardy Boys, a project on which he was a large contributor, writing 19 of the first 25 books between 1927 and 1946, and 21 overall. He also wrote books in several other juvenile series, published in pulp magazines, novellas or novels over his fifty-year career, at one point writing six novels in one year. McFarlane also wrote the first four volumes of The Dana Girls series for the Stratemeyer Syndicate under the pseudonym Carolyn Keene, which the Syndicate also used for the Nancy Drew series of books.
McFarlane returned to Canada, while still writing for the Hardy Boys series, to work for the National Film Board of Canada where he wrote and directed documentaries and short dramas.
