J. E. Preston Muddock

a.k.a. Dick Donovan *, James Edward Muddock, Joyce Emerson Preston Muddock

Author Code: EJPM

Born: May 28, 1843 - Southampton, England

Died: Jan. 23, 1934 - London (?), England

The son of a ship captain, Muddock traveled to India to be with his father when he was only 14. He worked in an ammunition factory and remained in India throughout the great Mutiny. After that he spent a number of years traveling around the world. He worked as a journalist for the Hour newspaper and was also a foreign correspondent in Switzerland for the Daily News. He adopted the pseudonym of Dick Donovan following the success of his detective character of the same name, using it on almost half of all of his work. He produced some superb crime thrillers before Conan Doyle appeared on the scene and, like Doyle, was a regular contributor to the Strand magazine. He was a prolific writer and produced over 30 novels, hundreds of short stories and many works of non-fiction. His output began to decline after the First World War in which all three of his sons were killed. His works include False Heart (1873), Wingless Angel (1875), The Man-Hunter (1888), A Detective's Triumphs (1891), The Jewelled Skull (1892), The Story of the Great Cat's Eye (1892), The Chronicles of Michael Danevitch of the Russian Secret Service (1897), Tales of Terror (1899), The Records of Vincent Trill of the Detective Service (1899), The Adventures of Tyler Tatlock (1900), Fair Rosalind (1902), Sunless City (1905), Pages From an Adventurous Life (1907), The Triumphs of Fabian Field, Criminologist (1910) and The Fatal Woman (1911).
