    2. I'm going to guess Irving Stone, but I really have no clue.

    1 - It started with a 'J'. I didn't watch the show, but it was on right before GI Joe back in the day so sometimes I'd turn on Saturday morning cartoons and the last 10 or so minutes would play in the background while I got brekkie together.

    3. There's lots of Ikea stuff called "Malm." Maybe that's it?

    That it is!

    3) The Malm. Though they had sold millions of units, the dresser was found to be unsafe.

    The other answers are...

    1) Jerrica Benton. Jerrica was the owner of the record company Starlight Music, and only her fellow band members knew that the two were one and the same.
    2) Evelyn Waugh. Waugh came to writing late, having tried his hand at teaching first, but he made up for lost time, publishing his first novel, Decline and Fall, the same year as the Rossetti book.
