Anna Katharine Green (1846-1935) was an American poet and novelist.


Green has been called "the mother of the detective novel". Green is


credited with shaping detective fiction into its classic form, and


developing the series detective. Her main character was detective


Ebenezer Gryce of the New York Metropolitan Police Force, but in three


novels he is assisted by the nosy society spinster Amelia Butterworth,


the prototype for Miss Marple, Miss Silver and other creations. She also


invented the 'girl detective': in the character of Violet Strange, a


debutante with a secret life as a sleuth. Indeed, as journalist Kathy


Hickman writes, Green "stamped the mystery genre with the distinctive


features that would influence writers from Agatha Christie and Conan


Doyle to contemporary authors of suspenseful "whodunits". She was one of


the first writers of detective fiction in America and distinguished


herself by writing well plotted, legally accurate stories. In addition


to creating elderly spinster and young female sleuths, Green's


innovative plot devices included dead bodies in libraries, newspaper


clippings as "clews", the coroner's inquest, and expert witnesses.

Born in Brooklyn, New York on November 11, 1846. Green had an early ambition to write romantic verse, and she corresponded with Ralph Waldo Emerson. When her poetry failed to gain recognition, she produced her first and best known novel, The Leavenworth Case (1878), praised by Wilkie Collins, and the hit of the year. She became a bestselling author, eventually publishing about 40 books.





On November 25, 1884, Green married the actor and stove designer, and later noted furniture maker, Charles Rohlfs (1853 – 1936), who was seven years her junior.Rohlfs toured in a dramatization of Green's The Leavenworth Case.



After his theater career faltered, he became a furniture maker in 1897,



and Green collaborated with him on some of his designs. Together they



had one daughter and two sons: Rosamund Rohlfs, Roland Rohlfs,



and Sterling Rohlfs. Her daughter Rosamund married Robert Twitty



Palmer. She died in 1935 and was buried in Buffalo, NY where her grave



is today located in the Forest Lawn Cemetery.
