Fanny Fern

Fanny Fern (born Sara Payson Willis; July 9, 1811 – October 10, 1872), was an American novelist, children's writer, humorist, and newspaper columnist in the 1850s to 1870s. Her popularity has been attributed to a conversational style and sense of what mattered to her mostly middle-class female readers.

By 1855, Fern was the highest-paid US columnist, commanding $100 per week for her ''New York Ledger'' column. A collection of her columns published in 1853 sold 70,000 copies in its first year. Her best-known work, the fictional autobiography ''Ruth Hall'' (1854), has become a popular subject among feminist literary scholars. Provided by Wikipedia
