The Betty Gordon books were an early Stratemeyer Syndicate series, published under the pseudonym Alice B. Emerson.


Edward Stratemeyer created the series and wrote plot outlines, but the books themselves were written by a number of ghostwriters. Josephine Lawrence wrote the first four volumes in the series, as well as volumes 7 and 9.[1] Titles 5 and 6 were written by W. Bert Foster; number 8 by Elizabeth M. Duffield Ward; and numbers 10 through 15 by Eunice W. Creager.[2]
