(1856-1916) UK journalist and author, for many years (dates not known) the partner of Richard Whiteing. She is of mild interest for the title story assembled in Mrs Wishing-to-be and Other Stories (coll 1883), in which an implausibly described broomstick-like Spaceship takes the protagonist to the Moon; and for Down the Snow Stairs; Or, From Good-Night to Good-Morning (1887) in which a staircase leads into a Hollow Earth or (just as plausibly) a Wonderland like found in Lewis Carroll's Alice books, of which this tale is a pious Parody.
