About the Author
Was the most widely read English novelists of her time, Marie Corelli’s novels outsold Arthur Conan Doyle, Rudyard Kipling and H.G. Wells. Her works were beloved by Queen Victoria and she published over 25 novels in 29 years. Although she wrote with the last name Corelli, she was born Mary Mackay and spoke no Italian but often pretended to do so to peoples amusement. An ardent preservationist she donated funds to help restore and keep the 17th century buildings that have come to define Stratford-upon-Avon. Today her works are largely ignored by scholars but they nonetheless continue to delight the scrupulous reader who finds them.
