Author Bio for Mackay, Mary

Author Image

Mary Mackay, known by her pseudonym, Marie Corelli, (1855-1924) was a English author of romantic fiction. Born in Bayswater, London, she was the only child of Scottish poet Charles Mackay and Mary Ellen Mills (his second wife). Musically talented, she adopted the pseudonym 'Marie Corelli' as a stage name but soon after her first concert she decided to give it up to write instead. It was only after publishing her third book, "Thelma: A Society Novel" in 1877 that she achieved celebrity author status. After publishing "Sorrows of Satan" (1895) she was one of the best selling novelist in England for over ten years. In 1901, she bought a house in Stratford-Upon-Avon where she lived for the rest of her life with her childhood friend and companion, Bertha Vyver. She was known for her extravagantly romantic fiction which encompassed all of her twenty-eight books. (The Oxford Guide to British Women Writers)
