My name is F.E. Young. The initials are in no way an attempt to desguise the fact that I am female. In fact, I'm happy and proud to be female...it suits me. My problem is with my name. In 1951 my mother named me Frances. This was timed perfectly for my eighth year to coincide with appearence of 'Frances the Talking Mule' movies on television. I became "Francie" just in time for the Gidget movies. For those of you who remember - Gidget's name was Francie. I suddenly found myself called "Fidget." But as an artist I signed F.E. Young. the initials spelled Fey, my grandmother's name and it stuck.
