Title
Onoto Watanna: The Story of Winnifred Eaton
Abstract
The Montreal-born author Winnifred Eaton (1875-1954) wrote under the supposedly-Japanese pseudonym Onoto Watanna, despite the fact she was of Chinese-British ancestry. She lived in Montreal until she was seventeen, where she began her writing career, then moved to Jamaica for a year, then to the United States. Under her pseudonym she published romance novels and short stories that were widely read throughout the United States. She later moved to Calgary with her second husband. Winifred Eaton's sister, Edith Maude Eaton (1865-1914) was also a novelist as well as a journalist who wrote under the Chinese pseudonym Sui Sin Far.
