John F Watt
Biographically, all that's known about him is that he was a Scot who began writing in the 1930s, selling stories under several names in Britain, South Africa, Canada, America and Ireland. After serving with the R.A.F., he returned to writing, his steadiest markets being romances and confessions written for Martin & Reid and Hamilton & Co.
Watt maintained a steady output of stories and novels for Spencer over the next couple of years; at the same time he was also selling romances to Oracle magazine.
I have found no more of John F. Watt's work after that date, but there is every chance that there is a great deal yet to discover... this outline dips into a writing career that lasted over thirty years and at least 57 novels. I hope someone out there will be able to let us know more about this fascinating author.
