Meet the Author

William Wilkie Collins (1824 - 1889) was an English novelist, playwright and short story writer. His best-known works are The Woman in White (1859), No Name (1862), Armadale (1866) and The Moonstone (1868). The last is considered the first modern English detective novel. Born into the family of painter William Collins in London, he lived with his family in Italy and France as a child and learned French and Italian. He worked as a clerk for a tea merchant. After his first novel, Antonina, was published in 1850, he met Charles Dickens, who became a close friend, mentor and collaborator. Some of Collins's works were first published in Dickens' journals All the Year Round and Household Words and the two collaborated on drama and fiction.

A supermodel looking girl walks in. She flips her light brown hair off her left shoulder. She looks around with her blue eyes. She walks up to the counter. "Are you hiring?"

She pulls the door open and walks in, letting her hair swish behind her. In all politeness, she nods at the person behind the counter with a careful smile.

She expertly masters the keys of the clarinet, playing a traditional New Orleans jazz tune. Her long blue braid swings in the breeze.
