Educated at the Downside School and privately in Germany, Williams joined the Reuter's Agency as a sub-editor in 1902. From 1904 to 1909, he served as their Berlin correspondent. He then joined the Daily Mail in Paris, working in various correspondent roles in Portugal, Spain, Austria and the Balkans. He joined the Irish Guards as a second lieutenant in 1915 and was wounded twice in battle and was awarded the Military Cross. He returned to London as a staff officer until he was demobilized in 1919. He took part in the Versailles Peace Conference on behalf of the Daily Mail. His first publication appeared in 1915 as With Our Army in Flanders. He introduced his detective character Clubfoot in 1918 with The Man With the Club Foot. His other characters included The Fox, Mr. Treadgold and detective Sergeant Trevor Dene. He was very popular during the 1930's and 1940's, but has sadly been ignored today. He was a Chevalier of the Order of the Crown of Belgium. His other works include The Secret Hand (1918), The Return of Clubfoot (1922), The Orange Divan (1923), The Red Mass (1925), Death Answers the Bell (1931), The Portculis Room (1934), Dead Man Manor (1936), The Fox Prowls (1939), Courier to Marrakesh (1944) and Skeleton Out of the Cupboard (1946).
