From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Gwen Bristow (born September 16, 1903 in Marion, South Carolina; died August 17, 1980 in New Orleans, Louisiana) was an American author and journalist.

Born in Marion, South Carolina, Bristow became interested in writing while reporting junior high school functions for her local newspaper. After studying at Columbia University, she wrote for a number of literary magazines and journals. Eventually, she moved to New Orleans, Louisiana, and worked at the New Orleans Times-Picayune. She became interested in longer forms of writing, novels and short stories, through her husband, screenwriter Bruce Manning, and she published her first novel in 1929. Bristow reached the pinnacle of her career with the western romance Jubilee Trail, which became a bestseller in 1950, and was adapted to a moderately successful film in 1954. She continued to write novels and articles for magazines until her death in 1980.
