Patrick Leyton Biography - Further Information
Patrick Leyton is a pseudonym of Brenda Cecilia Byng (thanks to James Cowan who sent us this information), but as so often happens, another author of this period about whom we have no more information. Something we should happily put right if anyone can help. On a bibliographical note, we suspect that many, if not all, of the HJ books could be undated.
