Barbara Cartland Books in Order

I always say that if you have authored more than 10 novels, you’re superhuman.

What if one published more than 700 novels?

You would belong in the same class as Barbara Cartland.

Dame Mary Barbara Hamilton Cartland— step-grandmother of Diana, Princess of Wales—is one of the most prolific authors of the 20th century.

This is the woman that Vogue called “the true Queen of Romance,” a dame who was a mainstay of the popular media and dressed in her trademark pink dresses and plumed hats most of the time.

It’s only right that I dedicate this article to this driven, independent-minded woman who wasn’t afraid of talking about love, marriage, politics, religion, health, and fashion.

Who Is Barbara Cartland?

Dame Barbara Cartland was born Mary Barbara Hamilton Cartland on the 9th of July, 1901, in Edgbaston, Birmingham, to Captain Bertram Cartland and his wife, Mary Hamilton Scobell.

The Cartland’s were well-off and comfortable until 1902 when James Cartland, Captain Bertram’s father, encountered serious financial difficulties and committed suicide.

Barbara’s father was tragically killed in 1918, and the young Barbara, her mother, and two brothers moved to London in 1919.

In London, Barbara began writing and by her early twenties, she was writing gossip columns for newspapers and had published Jigsaw, her first novel. The novel enjoyed huge success and was reprinted six times.

During the 1920s and 1930s, Barbara Cartland was a larger-than-life young hostess in London society and hosted daring parties. She was also noted for her eccentric style, makeup skills, and her trademark pink dresses.

She also began writing and producing racy plays, and one in particular, Blood Money, was banned by the Lord Chamberlain’s Office.

That wasn’t the only thing in Barbara Cartland’s catalog that aroused controversy. Cartland wrote a guide to married life in 1962, called ‘A Guide to Good Behaviour from the Boudoir to the Boardroom,’ which was banned in Ireland.

The 1970s and 1980s were Barbara Cartland’s most prolific period; she wrote 26 in 1976 alone, earning herself a place in the Guinness Book of World Record.

In all, she is said to have written 723 books, a catalog that is dominated by romantic novels but also includes autobiographies, biographies, health and cookery books, and stage plays. Out of those books, she sold over 1,000 million copies.

When she died, Barbara left 160 unpublished romances to her son, Ian, and he started publishing these brand-new Barbara Cartland stories as the Pink Collection in 2004. All 160 titles have now been published and are available as ebooks and paperbacks.

Who Publishes Barbara Cartland’s Work?

Barbara’s son, Ian McCorquodale, with the help of Jonathan Miller of M-Y Books Ltd, is now publishing his mother’s novels as paperbacks, e-books, audiobooks in several languages.

The books are sold on the official Barbara Cartland website which sells her two collections: the Eternal Collection (292 books) and the Pink Collection (161).

Summary

The queen of romance, Mary Barbara Hamilton Cartland, was Princess Diana’s step-grandmother.

But that’s not really what she is going to be remembered for. She is going to be remembered as a prolific writer who authored more than 700 books, mostly romance novels set in the 19th century.

She is also going to be remembered for her nonfiction titles, including biographies, plays, music, verse, drama, operettas, and a couple of health and cookbooks.

Her contribution to literature is immense!

That’s why she was invested by Queen Elizabeth II as a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) and why I dedicate this post to her numerous books.

Check them out here and appreciate the works of art she produced. 

About Jessica Majewski

Jessica started off as an avid book reader. After reading one too many romance novels (really... is it ever really enough?), she decided to jump to the other side and started writing her own stories.

She now shares what she has learned (the good and the not so good) here at When You Write, hoping she can inspire more up and coming wordsmiths to take the leap and share their own stories with the world.
