She was born in 1841 amd mamed Mercy Lavinia Warren Bump, but she became known the world over as Mrs Tom Thumb. Thirty-two inches tall, "Vinnie" refused to let her stature cost her opportunity. Melanie Benjamin pens an "autobiography" of Mrs Tom Thumb, a barnstorming tale of the antebellum South, of a woman's public triumphs and personal tragedies. Here are some of America's most memorable figures and a portrait in an unforgettable, singular voice - that of Vinnie - a woman who knocked the Civil War from the headlines.

Melanie Benjamin was born in Indianapolis, Indiana and attended college there. She has been an avid reader all her life and firmly believes that a lifetime of reading is the best education a writer can have. After college Melanie married and moved to the Chicago area to raise her children, but the desire to write was always there in the background. Soon she began writing for local magazines and newspapers before venturing into fiction. As Melanie Hauser she published two contemporary novels. Now writing as Melanie Benjamin, she's incorporated her passion for history and biography into ALICE I HAVE BEEN her first historical novel; THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF MRS. TOM THUMB is her second, and will be published in July 2011. Melanie and her family still live in the Chicago area where she enjoys writing, taking long walks, and gardening.
