 As a writer of popular magazine fiction, Grace Sartwell Mason needs no introduction.  She is already known to millions of magazine readers, having contributed stories to the Saturday Evening Post, Good Housekeeping, the Ladies' Home Housekeeping, the Ladies' Home Journal, Everybody's Munsey's and numerous other periodicals.  However, while practically every reader of modern fiction is acquainted, in a way, with Mrs. Mason, not very many really know much about her, hence the main object of this superficial little sketch is to introduce you personally to Mrs. Mason, who is as charming as the books and stories which she so cleverly writes.  According to Who's Who, which has a very disconcerting habit of recording (actually recording in black and white one's birth year),  Mrs. Mason was born in Port Allegheny, Pa., on Oct. 31, 1877, and the daughter of Stephen C. and Rosina (Thompson) Sartwell.  In 1902 she married James Redfern Mason of Birmingham, England, but evidently Mrs. Mason prefers the shores of her own country, for her present home is Carmel-By-the-Sea, Cal.  "The Shadow of Rosalie Byrnes," which is the latest work from the pen of this gifted writer, is very disappointing and not at all like Mrs. Mason.  The story has a very tawdry plot, the "shadow" of Rosalie Byrnes being the evil life of her sister, which threatened to blast romance and all in her life that was worth while, and the book generally gives one the impression of having been "slapped" together.  However, persons who pick up their reading as they do their fancy work, will no doubt enjoy it.
