Metta W. Victor was one of Beadle's most faithful writers, composing hundreds of books under her own name and under pen names for the Dime Novel publisher. She was born in Erie, Pennsylvania on March 2, 1831. Her first story, "The Silver Lute" was published in the local newspaper when she was just thirteen years old, and by the time she was fifteen, she had penned more than ten romance stories. Known as one of the most popular and charming wrters of her time, she was also an editor for the Beadle dime novels and wrote poems sketches, and stories for other publishers. The novels she wrote for Beadle were praised by Abraham Lincoln.
