Mary Gervaise, Hilary Wayne and Bellamy Brown are the pseudonyms for Joan Mary Wayne Brown. She was born on 21 April 1906 and died on 26 April 1998. She was a prolific writer, publishing over 70 books.[1] A bout of anaemia caused her to pursue writing at the age of 18, rather than attending college.[2]

As Mary Gervaise, she wrote several books for children. The majority of them were school related, but the Georgie and Belinda series were about horses.
