Dorothy Scarborough was really big in the 1920s. She was a Texan who taught literature at Columbia. Her most famous book The Wind (1925) had semi-supernatural aspects to it.
I have a public domain story by her that I'll upload sometime.
Unfortunately she was caught up in the copyright extension hassle. Here's a short article I wrote about her.
