Mary Elizabeth Braddon was a popular English novelist of the Victorian era, best known for her 1862 sensation novel Lady Audley's Secret which has also been dramatised and filmed several times. She was a prolific writer, producing more than 80 novels with inventive plots. She met John Maxwell (1824–1895), a publisher of periodicals in 1860, lived with him and acted as his children's stepmother but did not marry him until 1874, after his wife died while living in a mental asylum before they meet.
