Horatio Alger, Jr. (1832-1899) is the U.S. author that most people associate with rags-to-riches tales. He wrote several dozen novels, all on this theme.

Charles Dickens (1812-1870), Britain's most popular author and public speaker of his day, wrote many books which featured rags-to-riches themes.

Charlotte Bronte (1816-1855), Author of the classic Jane Eyre.

Daphne du Maurier (1907-1989), Author of Rebecca, My Cousin Rachel, and many others.

Rags-to-riches has long been a popular story theme, including classic folk tales and Fairy Tales whose authorship is lost to history: Aladdin, Cinderella, Dick Whittington, etc.
