No. The name Carolyn Keene, printed on every Nancy Drew book and every River Heights book, is just a pseudonym (a fake name of an author). In fact, the Nancy Drew books were written by various authors. Edward Stratemeyer actually created the characters (using the pseudonym so as not to embarrass his family if the books bombed). Since his death, the series and team of authors was carried on by his daughter.
