Picture of Henrietta Eliza Vaughan Stannard who wrote under the pseudonym of John Strange Winter

Henrietta Eliza Vaughan Stannard (1856-1911) writing under the pseudonym of John Strange Winter, was a British novelist. In 1881, appeared Cavalry Life, a collection of regimental sketches, and in 1883 Regimental Legends. Both bore the name of ‘John Strange Winter,’ a character that appears in the first publication. The publisher refused to bring out the books under a female name. The public assumed the author to be a cavalry officer.

In 1885, Booties’ Baby: a story of the Scarlet Lancers, the tale that assured her popularity, appeared in the Graphic. Two million copies were sold within ten years of its first publication. Tales of a similar character, with military life for their setting, followed in rapid succession until her death.
