Charles Dickens

Charles Dickens (1812-1870) started out as a journalist. Yes, like Mark Twain in America, Dickens had a daily pulse of the populace before embarking on his novelist ways. His works were originally published serially in British periodicals. Oliver Twist, A Christmas Carol, and David Copperfield are his best-selling novels though no holiday seems complete without a retelling of Dickens' classic 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.
