An English story-teller; born (Stevens) at Borough Green, Kent, about 1800; died 1876. She made her first essay with a tragedy, "Aristodemus,\" and then turned to prose fiction. "Lily Dawson" (1847) is regarded as the best of her novels. She became an ardent devotee of spiritualism and animal magnetism, and in 1852 published her most notable work, "The Night Side of Nature" (2 vols., 1852).
