Personal Quote:

Those people who say the rich should share what they've got are talking a lot of my eye and Betty Martin; it's only because they haven't got it they think that way... If I had it I'd hang on to it too.


Author of the best-seller, Below Stairs, which sold 14,000 copies in its first year in 1968. It again became a best-seller after the debut of Downton Abbey (2010), which, along with Upstairs, Downstairs (1971), took inspiration from the book.
