Charles Garvice (b. 24 August 1850 - d. 1 March 1920) was a prolific British writer of over 150 romance novels since 1850, who also used the female pseudonym Caroline Hart. He was a popular author in Britain, the United States and translated around the world. He was ‘the most successful novelist in England’, according to Arnold Bennett in 1910. He published novels selling over seven million copies worldwide by 1914, and since 1913 he was selling 1.75 million books annually, a pace which he maintained at least until his death. Despite his enormous success, he was poorly received by literary critics, and is almost forgotten today.
