[Alice Muriel Williamson (1858 - 1933), was an American-English author. Her success, in its early stages, was owing to Alfred Harmsworth who, recognizing her talent, promoted her stories - especially sensational serial stories - in the Daily Mail and his many other publications. Although best known for her series of motor travel romances, she was a literary polymath adept at a wide variety of genres (detective, mystery, Gothic, intrigue, spy, adventure, war, ghost, fairy, satire, fictional memoir, muckraking, etc.), often published anonymously or pseudonymously, such as Champion: The Story of a Motor Car (1907) as by John Colin Dane (memoirs narrated by the car itself), and this sensational exposé of German war plans on the eve of WWI, "What I Found Out in the House of a German Prince", purporting to be "by an American-English Governess," which was accepted as a true account and published serially in the Fortnightly Review.]
