James Francis Dwyer

Author Code: OJFD

Born: Apr. 22, 1874 - Camden Park, NSW, Australia

Died: Nov. 11, 1952 - Paris, France

With only an elementary school education, Dwyer became a clerk in a publishing house when he was 14. In 1892, he joined the Post Office as a letter carrier, eventually becoming a postal assistant in 1895. In 1899, he was convicted of forgery and sentenced to seven years in prison. Released in 1902, his first short stories were published after a series of minor jobs; he then turned to freelance journalism. In 1906, he went to London and, the following year, traveled to New York. His short stories proved popular in America and he was published in many leading periodicals including Harper's Bazaar and Colliers. In 1912, he published The White Waterfall, his first novel which was well-received. In 1921, he and his second wife moved to Pau in the French Pyrenees and he began the Dwyer Travel Letters, which were guides to Europe for American tourists. In 1940, when Germany invaded France, the Dwyers escaped through Spain and returned to America where they sat out the war, returning to Paris at its conclusion in 1945. His other works include The Pearl of Bad Luck (1912), The Spotted Panther (1913), Breath of the Jungle (1915), Golden Beads and Poppy Seeds (1922), Evelyn (1929), A Jungle Graduate (1932), Hespamora (1935), The Lady With Feet of Gold (1937) and The City of Cobras (1938).
