Short biography
Either anonymously or as 'Gwynfryn', Dorothea Jones (1828-1885) was the author of Friends in fur and feathers (1869), Sick and in prison (1873) and The otter's tale (1880). These will sometimes be found misattributed in library catalogues to the American nature writer, Olive Thorne Miller (1831-1918), or to Margaret Roberts (1833-1919). In the case of Miller, her similarly titled Little folks in feathers and fur : and others in neither [1880?] seems to be the cause of the confusion.
