May Sinclair

a.k.a. Mary Amelia St. Clair Sinclair

Author Code: EMAS

Born: Aug. 24, 1863 - Rock Ferry, Cheshire, England

Died: Nov. 14, 1946 - Bierton, Buckinghamshire, England

Educated at Cheltenham Ladies College, Sinclair's writing talent was recognized at the college by Dorothea Beale. It wasn't until 1886 that she began to publish, at first some philosophical poetry. Her first novel, Audrey Craven, appeared in 1897 and she was finally able to earn a modest living from writing. In 1904, her novel, The Divine Fire, became a best-seller. She moved to London where she became close friends with H.G. Wells, Thomas Hardy, W.B. Yeats and Ford Maddox Ford. From 1907 to 1912, Sinclair wrote many introductions for the Everyman's Library editions of the Bronte sisters and in 1912 published her novel, Three Sisters, which drew on the Bronte story. She became a member of the Women's Writers Suffrage League and the more militant Women's Freedom League. In 1913, she became a founding member of the Medico-Psychological Clinic of London and many of her works display her interest in psychology and psychoanalysis. In 1914, she was elected to the Society for Psychical Research. At the outbreak of war in 1914, she joined the Volunteer Ambulance Corps as secretary and treasurer and spent some time in Belgium. In 1916, she was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. In 1917, she published The Tree of Heaven, drawing on her war-time experiences. During the 1920's, Sinclair was one of the most acclaimed authors in Britain, but the onset of Parkinson's disease began to take its toll and by 1927 she had effectively ceased to write and had disappeared from literary society. Her other works include Essays in Verse (1892), Mr and Mrs Nevill Tyson (1898), The Helpmate (1907), The Judgment of Eve (1907), The Creators (1910), Mary Olivier: A Life (1919), The Romantic (1920), The Life and Death of Harriet Frean (1922) and Uncanny Stories (1923).
