    Hello, Maggie13.
    Welcome to UsingEnglish.com.

    If you are asking us to correct your sentence, it is "What do you think of the novels [which were] written by..."

    (Please don't ask for my opinions on his novels.)

    Don't worry. Neither did I. It's impossible to get to know all writers, and I had never, in my ignorance, heard of O. Henry.

    Although I have now, and so will you in a short time. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O._Henry

    They are creative, unusual, out-of-the-ordinary, unpredictable, and very much oriented to the human condition.

    O. Henry was known for writing short stories, not novels,
