Emily nee Chubbuck Judson (1817-1854) was an American poet and author who wrote under the pseudonym Fanny Forrester. Born to poor parents in New York, in 1834 she became a teacher and joined a Baptist


church. In 1840 she entered the Utica female seminary and wrote her first book, Charles Linn; or, How to Observe the Golden Rule, in 1841. After her failed attempt at writing children's stories, she was published in Nathaniel Parker Willis' New York Mirror, opening the door for contributions to other journals including The Columbian and Graham's Magazine. She met Adoniram Judson in 1845 and they married on June 22, 1846, later sailing to Burma where Judson had been a missionary for many years. In 1851, after the death of her husband and son, Chubbuck returned in poor health to the United States and resumed her writing. Her works include: The Great Secret (1842), Trippings in Author Land (1846), Alderbrook (1846), Allen Lucas: The Self-Made Man (1847), The Kathayan Slave (1853), My Two Sisters (1854) and Effie Maurice; or, What do I Love Best (1862).
