Short biography
Hallie Erminie Rives (1874–1956) was a popular American novelist.   Her father, a Confederate veteran of the Civil War, allowed her great freedom as "his little comrade," and she became known as "the Rives' little wildcat."

In her novels she addressed politics between the Northern and Southern United States, issues of race, and sex, causing great debate among critics. Among them was Smoking Flax (1897), a novel controversial even at the time, which takes a favorable position on lynching.  Her novel, The Castaway, is noted for being the subject of a Supreme Court copyright case, Bobbs-Merrill v. Straus, in which the US Supreme Court recognized the first sale doctrine, permitting purchasers of copies of books to resell them without seeking permission from the copyright holder.

In 1906 she married Post Wheeler in Tokyo, Japan, and moved with him to a variety of diplomatic posts. They co-wrote Dome of Many-Coloured Glass in 1952 about their lives in the United States Foreign Service.  [from Hallie Erminie Rives in Wikipedia]
