About the Author

Nellie Bly (1864-1922) was the pen-name of Elizabeth Jane Cochran, a pioneer in the field of investigative journalism. At 23, Bly faked insanity to be admitted to Blackwell's Island Asylum, leading to her sensational "Ten Days in a Madhouse." This was the first of several acts of undercover journalism and led to a flood of imitators. In 1890, she made headlines by traveling around the world in 72 days, beating Jules Verne's Phileas Fogg by eight days. In 1895, Bly married millionaire Robert Seaman, and as a widow took over his company. She would later return to journalism, becoming America's first female war correspondent and defending social causes. The Mystery of Central Park is her only mystery novel.
