About the Author

Eliza Haywood (1693? died Feb. 25, 1756, London) was a prolific English writer of sensational romantic novels that mirrored contemporary 18th-century scandals. She left her husband, a middle-aged clergyman, for the stage, supporting herself also by writing and adapting works for the theatre. She then turned to the extravagantly passionate fiction for which there was then a vogue, adopting the technique of writing novels based on scandals involving leaders of society, whom she denoted by initials. (The British Museum in London has a key giving their full names.)
