Catherine Crowe

a.k.a. Catherine Ann (nee) Stevens Crowe

Author Code: ECAC

Born: Sep. 20, 1790 - Borough Green, Kent, England

Died: Jun. 14, 1872 - Folkstone, Kent, England

Educated at home, Catherine married Major John Crowe and had a son in 1823, but she eventually separated from her husband. She moved to Edinburgh and produced the first of her two plays, Aristodemus, a verse tragedy. Her first successful novel, The Adventures of Susan Hopley, appeared in 1841. She moved to London and became close friends with Thackeray, among others, and for the next decade became an extremely popular author. She began to write stories of the supernatural and her Night Side of Nature (1847) is probably the work by which she is best remembered today. It was an instant best seller and ran through sixteen editions in only six years and made Crowe financially independent. She is also known for the much publicized account of her naked run through the streets of Edinburgh in 1854 which resulted in a short stay at the Hanwell Asylum. Crowe herself claimed that it was all false. Many of her supernatural stories were purported to be non-fiction, although highly embellished by Crowe. Her other works include Men & Women (1844), The Story of Lili Dawson (1847), The Adventures of a Beauty (1852), Linny Lockwood (1854), Light and Darkness (1856), Spiritualism and the Age We Live In (1859) and Ghost Stories and Family Legends (1859).
