Author Bio for Crowe, Catherine Ann

Author Image

Catherine Crowe (1790-1876) was an English novelist and short story writer. Born in Kent, she lived most of her life in Edinburgh after her marriage in 1822 to Lieutenant-Colonel John Crowe. She was strong believer in women's education. In her novel "Lilly Dawson" (1847) she commented that men's education of six hours a day at Latin and Greek was better than six hours a day at worsted work and embroidery. She was sympathetic to the lives of working-class women, particularly sexual pressures. Some of her books have plots where women cross class boundaries. "Susan Hopley" is a romance about a servant who discovers her brother's murderer and also finds out the she is the daughter of a colonel.

She was fascinated by the occult. One of her best known books, "The Night Side of Nature" is a collection of haunted house stories and supernatural events. A book called "Spiritualism and the Age We Live In" (1854) precipitated a mental breakdown after which she wrote very little. She lived the rest of her life as an invalid and died as the age of 86.
