Roma White

Standard Name: White, Roma
Birth Name: Blanche Oram
Married Name: Blanche Winder
Pseudonym: Roma Winder
RW began writing under her birth name, then launched her pseudonym in the final decade of the nineteenth century. Beginning with whimsy and fairy stories, she published novels, children's writing, travel books, and works about gardening and wild-life. Her fiction spans romantic sentiment, reformist social thinking, and a blend of both. Some novels are highly revealing of British imperial attitudes to racial and ethnic difference. RW also wrote under her married name as Blanche Winder.
