Über den Autor

Mark Twain, born Samuel Langhorne Clemens on November 30, 1835, in Florida, Missouri, and deceased on April 21, 1910, was an American author and humorist celebrated for his sharp social commentary and masterful use of vernacular speech. Twain began his career as an apprentice printer and later worked as a typesetter and journalist. He gained national attention with the publication of 'The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County' in 1865 and achieved international fame with his novels 'The Adventures of Tom Sawyer' (1876) and 'Adventures of Huckleberry Finn' (1885), the latter often referred to as 'The Great American Novel.' His literary style combined realism, humor, and keen observation of human nature, often incorporating his experiences from his travels, especially on the Mississippi River, into his works. Twain's 'Supernatural Mysteries: 60+ Horror Tales, Ghost Stories & Murder Mysteries' showcases his ability to venture into the darker realms of storytelling, reflecting his interest in the paranormal and the human psyche. His writings are not only celebrated for their imaginative plots but also for their contribution to American literature and their enduring impact on readers and writers around the world. Twain received honorary degrees during his lifetime and has since been inducted into the Hall of Fame for Great Americans.
