About Nancy Drew

The story
The character Nancy Drew is a teenage, amateur detective, from the small town of River Heights, who lives with her father, criminal lawyer Carson Drew, and family housekeeper Hannah Gruen. Nancy is often assisted on her crime investigations by her two best friends, Bess Marvin and George Fayne, and on occasion her boyfriend, Ned Nickerson.

The series
The Nancy Drew series began with the Nancy Drew Mystery Stories books, with the first story The Secret of the Old Clock published on April 28, 1930. The books are credited to writer Carolyn Keene, which is a pseudonym used for the various authors.
