Olive Green is the pseudonym of Chicagoan Myrtle Reed (1874-1911), a famous romance author. 'Lavender and Old Lace' is the most well-known today. She produced 17 books, innumerable household columns (under another pseudonym, Katherine LaFarge Norton) and the ten cookery volumes in the Putnam's Homemaker Series during her short 13 year writing career. Unfortunately, Myrtle Reed suffered her whole life with bouts of depression and ultimately committed suicide despite her roaring publishing success.
