The only female pulp novelist to work during the heyday (1939-59). K. T. McCall was the pseudonym of Audrey Armitage in collaboration with Muriel Watkins.
She was blonde, beautiful and brainy. And K.T. McCall was one of the world's highest paid female crime writers, or so said the blurb on the book's back cover. Almost 50 years later Audrey Armitage, the real K.T. McCall, still laughs when she recalls her time as one of the country's most prolific and popular authors. "I think I was the only woman so it wasn't hard to be the highest paid," she says.
