About the Author:

Baroness Emma Magdolna Rozalia Maria Jozefa Borbala Emmuska Orczy de Orczi was born on September 23, 1865 in Tarnaors, Heves County, Hungary, the daughter of a composer and a countess. Leaving for Budapest, Brussels and Paris in 1868 because of a revolution, Emma studies music and then art. While in art school, she met and married Montague MacLean Barstow in 1894. It was considered to be the perfect marriage for nearly 50 years. They had one son in 1899. Working as a translator and illustrator, she began writing detective stories and developed a small following. In 1903, she and her husband wrote “The Scarlet Pimpernel” as a play, which ran for four years and eventually became a novel with more than a dozen sequels. The books were so successful, she purchased an estate in Monte Carlo. During World War I, she formed a volunteer group with 20,000 female members. She died on November 12, 1947, at the age of 82, in Henley-on-Thames, South Oxfordshire, England.
