Asked in Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys
Do the hardy boys and Nancy drew bookes have a connection?
Both series were created by the Stratemeyer Syndicate, a children's book packager which also created the the Bobbsey Twins, Rover Boys, and Tom Swift series. The printed authors for all of these series are pseudonyms (fake names used by many authors). There have been two ND/HB crossover series: The Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys SuperMystery series produced 36 books from 1988 to 1998, and the Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys Super Mystery series, which has produced four books since 2007.
Did Franklin W Dixon exist?
No. The name Franklin W. Dixon, printed on every Hardy Boys book, is just a pseudonym (a fake name of an author). In fact, the Hardy Boys books were written by various authors. Edward Stratemeyer actually created the characters (using the pseudonym so as not to embarass his family if the books bombed). Since his death, the series and team of authors was carried on by his daughter. By the way, the same goes for the Nancy Drew books which were also created by Edward Stratemeyer under the pseudonym Carolyn Keene. *This is a catch-all question.* If you have further questions about this subject (including Stratemeyer, the Hardy Boys, and numbers of Hardy Boys books), please ask them and categorize them into Teen Detectives so they may be answered promptly and properly by a topic expert.
