Meet the Author

Mary Roberts Rinehart (August 12, 1876-September 22, 1958) was a
prolific author often called the American Agatha Christie. She is
considered the source of the phrase "The butler did it", although
she did not actually use the phrase herself, and also considered to
have invented the "Had-I-But-Known" school of mystery writing. She
was born in Allegheny City, Pennsylvania, which has been a part of
the city of Pittsburgh since 1907. Her father was a frustrated
inventor, and throughout her childhood, the family often had
financial problems. She was left-handed at a time when that was
considered inappropriate, and she was trained to use her right hand
instead. She attended public schools and graduated at the age of
sixteen, then enrolled at the Pittsburgh Training School for Nurses
at Homeopathic Hospital, where graduated in 1896. She described the
experience as "all the tragedy of the world under one roof." After
graduation she married Stanley Marshall Rinehart, a physician whom
she met there. They had three sons and one daughter: Stanley Jr.,
Frederick, Alan, and Elizabeth Glory. During the stock market crash
of 1903 the couple lost their savings, and this spurred Rinehart's
efforts at writing as way to earn income. She was 27 that year, and
she produced 45 short stories. In 1907 she wrote The Circular
Staircase, the novel that launched her to national fame. According
to her obituary in The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, that book alone
sold a million and a quarter copies. Her regular contributions to
the Saturday Evening Post were immensely popular and helped the
magazine mold American middle-class taste and manners. Rinehart’s
commercial success sometimes conflicted with her domestic roles of
wife and mother. Yet she often pursued adventure, including a job
as the first woman war correspondent at the Belgian front during
World War I. In the early 1920s the family moved to Washington, DC
when Dr. Rinehart was appointed to a post in the Veterans
Administration. He died in 1932, but she continued to live there
until 1935, when she moved to New York City. There she helped her
sons found the publishing house Farrar & Rinehart, serving as
its director. She also maintained a vacation home in Bar Harbor,
Maine, where she was involved in a real-life drama in 1947. Her
