Daisy Ashford

a.k.a. Margaret Mary Julia (nee) Ashford Devlin

Author Code: EDAS

Born: Apr. 7, 1881 - Petersham, Surrey, England

Died: Jan. 15, 1972 - Hellesdon, Norfolk, England

A child prodigy, Ashford was educated at home and had already constructed her first story when she was four years old. At the age of nine, she wrote The Young Visiters, a story of upper class English society. The book was finally published in 1919, but retained her original spelling and punctuation, or in many instances, lack of it. It was quite a success at the time. She had continued to write until she reached her teenage years. She worked as a secretary and ran a canteen during the First World War. Her second publication, Daisy Ashford: Her Book, which included a story by her sister Angela, appeared in 1920. She married that year and moved to Norfolk. The couple moved to Hellesdon near Norwich in 1939. Whilst Ashford never wrote again, a number of her works from her youth were published at the end of her life or posthumously. These include Love and Marriage (1965), Where Love Lies Deepest (1966) and The Hangman's Daughter and Other Stories (1983).
