Journal Entry 1 by wingSqnutZipswing from Silver Spring, Maryland USA on Saturday, September 21, 2019
There seems to be a long history of women writing detective, murder/mystery novels.
Anna Katharine Green is often referred to as "The Mother of the Detective Novel". "The Leavenworth Case" was 1st published in 1878, nine years before Arthur Conan Doyle's "Sherlock Holmes" series. This book by Green went on to become the standard by which new detective stories were measured. I've also read "Pudd'n Head Wilson" detective/mystery by Mark Twain which was published 16 years later in 1894.
