Grace Zaring Stone

Grace Zaring Stone

"Grace Zaring Stone" (1891 – February 3, 1991) was an American novelist and short story writer [ Grace Zaring Stone, a Novelist Under Two Names, Dies at 100 - New York Times ] ] . She is perhaps best known for having three of her novels made into films: "The Bitter Tea of General Yen", "Winter Meeting", and "Escape". She also used the pseudonym of Ethel Vance.


Grace Zaring Stone was the great-great-granddaughter of Robert Owen. Her mother died in her childhood. She started writing in St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, where she lived with her husband, a member of the Navy. Later, she moved to Stonington, Connecticut.

Mrs Stone used the pseudonym of Ethel Vance to write her 1939 novel "Escape", to avoid jeopardising her daughter, who was living in occupied Europe during the Second World War.

She died in Mystic, Connecticut.
