The pseudonym of Charlotte Monica Braeme (1836-84), an English writer of popular romance novels. After her death, the pseudonym was taken up by male writers Thomas Chalmers Harbaugh (1849-1924) and Frederick Van Rensselaer Dey (1861-1922). Miles also makes unflattering reference to Bertha M. Clay in a feature story "Public Library Cause for Pride" (5/8/14:8).
