Meet the Author

Mulford was born in Sag Harbor, New York and, in 1856, sailed to
California where he would spend the next 16 years. During this
time, Mulford spent several years in mining towns, trying to find
his fortune in gold, copper, or silver. After leaving the mining
life, Mulford ran for a position on the California State Assembly
in Sacramento. Although he was nominated, he ultimately lost the
election. He returned to San Francisco and began writing for a
weekly newspaper, The Golden Era. Mulford spent five years as a
writer and editor for various papers and was named by many San
Franciscans a "Bohemian," for his disregard for money. Mulford
states in his autobiography, "poverty argued for us possession of
more brains" (Prentice Mulford's Story 130). He became known for
his humorous style of writing and vivid descriptions of both mining
life as well as life at sea. In 1872, Mulford returned to New York
City, where he became known as a comic lecturer, author of poems
and essays, and a columnist for [The New York Daily Graphic] from
1875-1881. Mulford was also instrumental in the founding of the
popular philosophy, New Thought, along with other notable writers
including Ralph Waldo Emerson. Mulford's book, Thoughts are Things
served as a guide to this new belief system and is still popular
today.
