Author Bio: Morgan Robertson

Morgan Robertson (1861–1915) was an American short-story writer and novelist. The son of a ship’s captain, he spent several years at sea and then trained in jewelry making. He began writing sea stories when, after ten years as a diamond setter, his eyesight began to fail. Written in 1898, The Wreck of the Titan came to be seen as prophetic after the sinking of the Titanic in 1912. He is known as one of America’s best authors on the subject of the sea.
