Wells, Carolyn

▪ American writer
born June 18, 1862, Rahway, N.J., U.S.
died March 26, 1942, New York, N.Y.

      prolific American writer remembered largely for her popular mysteries, children's books, and humorous verse.

      Wells supplemented her formal education with an early-formed habit of voracious reading. After completing her schooling she worked as a librarian for the Rahway Library Association for some years. Her love of puzzles led to her first book, At the Sign of the Sphinx (1896), a collection of charades. She followed with The Jingle Book (1899); The Story of Betty (1899), first of a series of novels for girls; and Idle Idyls (1900), a book of verse for adults.

      From 1900 Wells gave herself entirely to literary work, and over the next four decades she produced a flood of books, some 170 titles that fell into several genres: children's stories, mystery and detective stories, anthologies, and humorous and nonsense writings. Among her books are Patty Fairfield (1901), beginning a second popular series for girls; A Nonsense Anthology (1902), one of her best-known books; The Rubaiyat of a Motor Car (1906); Marjorie's Vacation (1907), beginning another series; A Chain of Evidence (1912); The Maxwell Mystery (1913); The Book of Humorous Verse (1920); The Book of Limericks (1925); Horror House (1931); Murder in the Bookshop (1936); and Murder Will In (1942). Her autobiography, The Rest of My Life, appeared in 1937.

      Wells was especially noted for her humour, and she was a frequent contributor of nonsense verse and whimsical pieces to such little magazines as Gelett Burgess (Burgess, Gelett)'s The Lark, the Chap Book, the Yellow Book, and the Philistine.
