War correspondent and brothel owner. Cora Stewart-Taylor-Crane was better known as the unconventional common law wife of writer Stephen Crane.

Cora, a well-born Bostonian who ran a elegant brothel house in Jacksonville, Fl called the 'Hotel de Dream'.

Cora and Stephen met in a Jacksonville, Fl brothel in 1896 while Stephen was on an expedition to Cuba in 1896 to report on the Spanish-American War. Crane narrowly escaped death when his ship sank. Cora nursed him back to health and later traveled with him to Greece, to cover the Greco-Turkish war for the New York press.

Cora was billed as the first female war correspondent, she wrote under the pen name Imogene Carter. After the war ended, the Cranes settled in England, where they socialized with literary luminaries including Conrad, James and Wells.

Following his death, Cora unsuccessfully attempted a literary career of her own and then opened another brothel in Jacksonville.
