Mary Hartwell Catherwood.

Mary Hartwell Catherwood (1847-1902) was an American writer of historical romances.

Borth in Ohio in 1847, she published both novels and short stories in periodicals such as Lippincott's Magazine, Harper’s Magazine, and the Atlantic Monthly. Due to Catherwood’s husband’s business, she traveled and lived throughout the Midwestern United States and developed her signature style of incorporating Midwestern culture, dialect, and local color into her texts. Although most of her novels and stories are set in Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, some are also based along the American border with French Canada and on colonial Mackinac Island. She died in Chicago, Illinois in 1902.
