Barbara Cartland was born 9 July 1901, and died 21 May 2000


  1. A historical romance is the only kind of book where chastity really counts. 
  2. As long as the plots keep arriving from outer space, I’ll go on with my virgins. 
  3. Nobody sends up Barbara Cartland better than I do myself. I employ three secretaries and six outside people. I have the biggest Xerox you can buy. It’s a factory here. I’m Top of the Pops and I’ve worked very hard for it.

Cartland was an English author. She was one of the most prolific authors of the 20th century. She has sold over 1,000 million books.  Her 723 romance novels are still read in over 36 countries today.
