He was immensely popular with the reading public and wrote a stream of bestselling novels which earned him a considerable fortune. He coined the phrases 'the great unwashed', 'pursuit of the almighty dollar', 'the pen is mightier than the sword', as well as the infamous opening line 'It was a dark and stormy night'. Leila is well researched, taking place in late 1491, on the eve of the fall of the last Moorish stronghold in Spain, Granada, and fueled by the courtly intrigue and mighty battles, mostly from the side of the defeated, and the besieged Alhambra: 'that place.still called El ultimo suspiro del Moro -- The last Sight of the Moor."
