Norris, Kathleen Thompson: The Rich Mrs. Burgoyne. V1. 15 Oct 2009
Kathleen Thompson Norris (July 16, 1880, San Francisco, California – January 18, 1966, Palo Alto, California) was an American novelist and wife of fellow writer Charles Norris, whom she wed in 1909. She was educated in a special course at the University of California and wrote many popular romance novels that some considered sentimental and honest in their prose. Norris was the highest-paid female writer of her time, and many of her novels are held in high regard today. Many of her novels were set in California, particularly the San Francisco area. They feature detailed descriptions of the upper-class lifestyle. After 1910 she contributed to Atlantic, The American Magazine, McClure's, Everybody's, Ladies' Home Journal and Woman's Home Companion.
“Annie, what are you doing? Polishing the ramekins? Oh, that’s right. Did the extra ramekins come from Mrs. Brown? Didn’t! Then as soon as the children come back I’ll send for them; I wish you’d remind me. Did Mrs. Binney come? and Lizzie? Oh, that’s good. Where are they? Down in the cellar! Oh, did the extra ice come? Will you find out, Annie? Those can wait. If it didn’t, the mousse is ruined, that’s all! No, wait, Annie, I’ll go out and see Celia myself.”
