Leslie McFarlane spent his early years as a newspaper reporter, but when he came across an ad for an "Experienced Fiction Writer Wanted to Work from Publisher's Outlines" in 1926, he couldn't resist. He was given a position as a ghostwriter for Edward Stratemeyer, a prominent author and publisher, who eventually brought forth The Hardy Boys. McFarlane wrote twenty-one books for the series under the pseudonym Franklin W. Dixon, for a flat fee of $125 each, and they soon became the best-selling set of boys' books in the world. Originally published in 1976, The Ghost of the Hardy Boys is a witty, engaging memoir about the difficulties of navigating the publishing world that will give you a whole new respect for The Hardy Boys.
