Active during the latter part of the nineteenth century, United States author SOJ wrote fiction in the form of short stories, novels, and novellas. Her interest in experimentation, and a particular skill in delineating character (especially in her shorter works), means that her frequent designation as a writer of local-colour fiction neglects many of the nuances of her work.
