Thomas Elmer Huff was a best selling author of twenty-three gothic and romance novels under many pen names such as Edwina Marlow, Beatrice Parker, Katherine St. Clair, and Jennifer Wilde. Huff's writing style was noted for having strong first person narratives from the heroine's perspective, something many male writers continue to struggle with.
