Author Biography - Catherine Gore
Catherine Gore was born in 1799. As a child she wrote poetry and was called 'the poetess' by her friends. Within a year of her marriage she had embarked upon a prolific writing career which was to last for more than three decades and produce more than 60 published works, both novels and plays. Her novels, noted for their wit, were very popular at the time; her obituary in The Times in 1861 called her 'the best novel writer of her class and the wittiest woman of her age.'
