Marjorie Lewty, née Lobb (b. 8 April 1906 in Wallasey, Cheshire, England, UK – d. 21 January 2002) was a British writer of short stories and over 45 romance novels from 1958 to 1999 to Mills & Boon.[1]



Marjorie Lobb was born on 8 April 1906 in Wallasey, Cheshire, England, UK, daughter of James, a sailor in the Merchant Navy, and Mabel, was the manager of the Queen's Cinema in Liverpool. She studied at Queen Mary High School in Liverpool, but her plans to study sciences at university were thwarted, when her father died. She was forced to take a hated job at secretary of the District Bank Ltd. from 1923 to 1933, when she married with Richard Arthur Lewty, a dental surgeon of Liverpool. They had one son Simon, and one daughter, Deborah (Bornoff). After her marriage she began to write short stories which were published in magazines. In 1958, she sold her first romance novel to Mills & Boon, and her last novel in 1999. Her husband died in 1978, and she died on 21 January 2002.[2]
