Hide Profile

G.B. Stern was an English author, known for her charming and energetic novels of family life. Born in London as Gladys Bertha Stern - she would later change her middle name to Bronwyn, and was called Peter by her friends - she had a rich and varied education, culminating in one year at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts. She wrote prolifically from an early age, and published novels, plays, short stories, biographies, literary criticism, and memoirs, and is probably best known for her books about the endearing Rakinowitz family, based on her own family. She was also an acknowledged expert on Jane Austen, and worked as a journalist and screenwriter.
