Millie wrote the Penny Nichols series under the pen name of Joan Clark for the Goldsmith Company.
This series is about Penelope "Penny" Nichols, the daughter of a detective. She helps her father
solve cases. Penny Nichols is a similar character to Penny Parker, both more bold and pluckier than even Nancy Drew® was.
This is a fun series to read, conisisting of four volumes:
- volume #1 Penny Nichols Finds a Clue, 1936
- volume #2 Penny Nichols and the Mystery of the Lost Key, 1936
- volume #3 Penny Nichols and the Black Imp, 1936
- volume #4 Penny Nichols and the Knob Hill Mystery, 1939
These books came in two sizes--a shorter version and a taller version. Boards came in shades from
lime green to brown to red. The same art was featured on each volume's dust jacket of blond
