Corra May Harris (1869-1935), an American writer, was born Corra Mae White in Elbert County, Georgia. Although she became famous for her fiction, Harris's reputation for reactionary conservatism lasted throughout her life and became part of her contradictory legacy. Such a reputation resulted in part from her first nationally published piece in 1899. After A Circuit Rider's Wife was published in 1910, Harris wrote and published prolifically, both fiction and non-fiction, throughout the nineteen-teens. By the early 1930s Harris's publishing was limited largely though not exclusively to the local. The last four years of her life, from 1931-1935, she published what critics have called some of her best writing in a tri-weekly Candlelit Column in the Atlanta Journal. Her other works include: The Jessica Letters: An Editor's Romance (with Paul Elmer More) (1904), Eve's Second Husband (1910), In Search of a Husband (1913), The Co-Citizens (1915), Making Her His Wife (1918), From Sunup to Sundown (1919), Happily Married (1920), A Daughter of Adam (1923) and My Book and Heart (1924).
