"Captain" Reid wrote many adventure novels akin to those written by Frederick Marryat and Robert Louis Stevenson; born in Ballyroney, a small hamlet near Katesbridge, County Down, in the north of Ireland; In late 1842 Reid arrived in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he began his literary career writing both prose and poetry for the Pittsburgh Morning Chronicle under the pen-name The Poor Scholar; In early 1843, Reid moved to Philadelphia, where he remained for three years. During this time he worked as a journalist and from time to time had poetry published in Godey's Lady's Book, Graham's Magazine, the Ladies National Magazine, and similar publications, using the same pseudonym he had employed in Pittsburgh; When the Mexican-American War began in the spring of 1846, Reid was working as a correspondent for the New York Herald in Newport, Rhode Island (which would later become the setting for yet another novel). At this time he began using the pen-name Ecolier, in addition to the Poor Scholar; On November 23, 1846, Reid joined the First New York Volunteer Infantry as a second lieutenant; On May 5, 1848 Reid resigned his commission and in July he returned to New York with his regiment; moved to London, and in 1850 published his first novel; The Rifle Rangers; 1867 moved to Newport , Rhode Island and then went back to New York; returned to England on October 22, 1870, and lived at Ross on Wye, Herefordshire; Reid died in London, at the age of 65) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Mayne_Reid
