English-born novelist and playwright Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849-1924) is best known for her three children's classics: The Secret Garden, A Little Princess, and Little Lord Fauntleroy. Her 40-some books focus on sentimental, romantic themes, and her biography, written by her son (the model for Little Lord Fauntleroy), is called The Romantick Lady.
