Correct, of course.  In further trivia, I am apparently a very distant descendant of hers.  So keep your eyes off granny's tits! :=

Well guess it is my turn. and sticking with a link to the prior question by involving the city of Coventry.
This mid 19th century author lived for sometime near Coventry and was one of the leading writers of the Victorian era. She wrote under a man's name. What was this author's pen name? and a bonus question what was her real name?

I would guess at George Elliot, although if I'm right, I'm afraid I don't know the real name.

You are correct there. Give some people a little while to guess the real name but you can pose another question.
