Author information

Wilkie Collins (1824-89) was one of the most popular novelists of his day; in 65 years he wrote 25 novels, more than 50 short stories, at least 15 plays, and more than 100 non-fiction pieces. A close friend of Charles Dickens from their meeting in March 1851 until Dickens' death in 1870, Collins was one of the best known, best loved, and, for a time, best paid of Vistorian fiction writers. Exploring the realms of mystery, suspense and crime, he is often regarded as the inventor of the detective story.show more
