Description:

"Emily Emmins, spinster," has written down a vivacious account of her trip to London and brief sojourn in that city and its vicinity. In setting out from New Jersey, her determination was to eschew sightseeing and the whol cult of Baekeker. A traveller more suspicious of the traveller's immemorial privilege of sentiment is not often encountered. Although one day was actually given to a Stratford visit, it was only upon a tacit agreement with her companion that neither of them should hazard a single quotation from Shakespeare; and the climax of the day's adventures was reached when these sophisticated pilgrims, who had followed what they supposed to be the footpath route across the fields to the Arden cottage, discovered that they had gone in precisely the wrong direction, and that the hour was now close on train time!

Author Bio for Wells, Carolyn

Author Image

Carolyn Wells (June 18, 1862 – March 26, 1942) was an American author and poet.

Her first book, At the Sign of the Sphinx (1896), was a collection of charades. Her next publications were The Jingle Book and The Story of Betty (1899), followed by a book of verse entitled Idle Idyls (1900). After 1900, Wells wrote numerous novels and collections of poetry.

Carolyn Wells wrote a total of more than 170 books. During the first ten years of her career, she concentrated on poetry, humor and children's books. According to her autobiography, The Rest of My Life (1937), it was around 1910 that she heard one of Anna Katherine Green's mystery novels being read aloud and was immediately captivated by the unravelling of the puzzle. From that point onward she devoted herself to the mystery genre. Among the most famous of her mystery novels were the Fleming Stone Detective Stories which—according to Allen J. Hubin's Crime Fiction IV: A Comprehensive Bibliography, 1749–2000 (2003)—number 61 titles.--Wikipedia.
