Patricia Wentworth *

a.k.a. Dora Amy Elles

Author Code: EPWW

Born: Nov. 10, 1878 - Mussoorie, India

Died: Jan. 28, 1961 - Camberley, Surrey, England

Privately educated in India, then at Blackheath High School in London, Elles returned to India after graduating and, some time later, married George Dillon, a divorcee with three children. The couple had a daughter, but Dillon died in 1906 and Elles returned to England with the four children. She adopted the pseudonym of Patricia Wentworth and her first novel appeared in 1910, A Marriage Under the Terror, which was not only well-received, but won the prestigious Melrose prize for that year. She wrote a number of historical novels before turning to the detective genre in 1923 with the publication of The Astonishing Adventures of Jane Smith. In 1928, she introduced the character of Maud Silver, which would subsequently influence Agatha Christie and her Miss Marple character which would share the same characteristics. Wentworth went on to publish over 30 crime novels and continued to publish until her death. Her other works include Little More Than Kin (1911), Fire Within (1913), Queen Anne is Dead (1915), Dower House Mystery (1925), Grey Mask (1928), Danger Calling (1931), The Case is Closed (1937), In The Balance (1941), Silence in Court (1945), Through the Wall (1950), Gazebo (1955), Alington Inheritance (1958) and The Girl in the Cellar (1961).
