Short biography
Laura Jean Libbey, born in Brooklyn, New York, was the prolific author of sensational "dime novels," i.e., romance fiction aimed at women. They were highly formulaic but very popular. From 1891 to 1894, she edited the periodical George Munro’s Fashion Bazaar, and later in life wrote a love advice column for The New York Mail. In 1898, at age 36, she married Van Mater Stilwell, a lawyer. Three of her stories were adapted into films in the 1920s: When Love Grows Cold (1925), A Poor Girl’s Romance (1927), and In a Moment of Temptation (1928).
