Alice Brown (December 5, 1856-June 21, 1948) was an American novelist, poet and playwright, most famous as a writer of local color stories. She also contributed a chapter to the collaborative novel The Whole Family (1908).

She was born in Hampton Falls, New Hampshire, and graduated from Robinson Seminary in Exeter in 1876. She worked as a schoolteacher after that, but moved to Boston to write full-time in 1884, where she worked at the Christian Register and, starting in 1885, the Youth's Companion.

She was a prolific author for many years, but her popularity waned after the turn of the century. She stopped writing after 1935.
