Lane received her basic education in local schools in Washington, D.C. She initially wrote short stories, but in 1891 published her first book, Mills of God, which received wide public and critical acclaim. She married Dr. Francis R. Lane, who had a prestigious career in education. Her unfortunate early death cut short a promising literary career which hitherto had seen the publication of only five books, the best of which, Katrine, was issued shortly after her death. Katrine reached number 2 on the 1909 Best-sellers list. All of Lane's works are still very readable today. The other works include All For the Love of a Lady (1906), Nancy Stair (1906) and The Apple-Tree Cottage (1910 Posthumous).
