Meet the Author

William Wilkie Collins (8 January 1824 – 23 September 1889) was an English novelist, playwright, and author of short stories. He was very popular during the Victorian era and wrote 30 novels, more than 60 short stories, 14 plays, and over 100 non-fiction pieces. His best-known works are The Woman in White, The Moonstone, Armadale and No Name.
Collins predicted the deterrence concept of mutually assured destruction that defined the Cold War nuclear era. Writing at the time of the Franco-Prussian War in 1870 he stated, "I begin to believe in only one civilising influence – the discovery one of these days of a destructive agent so terrible that War shall mean annihilation and men's fears will force them to keep the peace."

    Sits and wonders about things. Big things. Important things. <p> Like why his attention span is so short. <p> Or if he'll ever finish his lightsaber. <p> Then he begins to wonder what exactly he was wnodering about. Then he looks at threepio and wonders what the heck hes trying to say.
