Short biography
(edited down from google translation of her French wikipedia page. why no English page???)

John Stephen Strange, pseudonym of Dorothy Stockbridge Tillet, born in 1896 and died in 1983, is an American author of detective stories.

Dorothy Stockbridge Tillet unsuccessfully published a book of poetry in 1920. She adopted the pseudonym of John Stephen Strange and turned to the detective novel.

In 1925 her first title, 'Revenge of a police officer', introduced her recurring hero detective Van Dusen Ormsberry. Assisted by the young Bill Adams; this meticulous detective manages to solve the mystery that hovers over the past two years on the murder of Fortescue financial and found guilty of the death of a famous criminologist in a bus. Strange also offers two classic puzzles to Whodunits Ormsberry before leaving for Barney Gantt, friendly Pulitzer Prize winning photographer, who returns eight investigations of great complexity, whose stories are eyeing a little towards the thriller and above to the thriller with stories of kidnappings and ransoms.

The Accused, one of eight novels without recurring hero John Stephen Stange tells the surprising story of Bardoley judge confronted with his past when it load a case where the accused is a former youth flame. This time, the plot recalls the style of John Dickson Carr, including the novel The Ireton judge is accused, without the novel Strange has suffered from the comparison.
