Short biography
After being abandoned by her husband, Emma Southworth began to write stories in order to supplement her income as a teacher and support her children. She used the pen name E.D.E.N. Southworth. Some of her earliest works appeared in The National Era, the Washington, D.C.-based newspaper that originally serialized Uncle Tom's Cabin. The bulk of her work appeared as a serial in Robert Bonner's The New York Ledger, which was widely read in the 1850s and 1860s.
