Mary Gaunt

a.k.a. Mary Eliza Bakewell Gaunt

Author Code: OMEG

Born: Feb. 20, 1861 - Chiltern, Australia

Died: Jan. 19, 1942 - Cannes, France

Educated at Grenville College, Ballarat College and the University of Melbourne, Gaunt did not complete her degree. She began contributing short stories and articles to journals such as Argus, the Australian and the Sydney Mail. She visited Europe in 1890-91 and in 1894 married Dr. Hubert Miller. That same year she published Dave's Sweetheart, her first novel.She was devastated by her husband's early death in 1900 and was left penniless. She decided to make her living as a writer and moved to London in 1901, never to return to Australia. She travelled to far off places such as China and Africa and her experiences formed much of her later writing. She settled in Italy in the early 1920s, but in 1940 she was forced to flee and settled in Vance, France. Her health deteriorated and she passed away two years later. She was an accomplished story-teller, but is not considered a great author. Her best work was undoubtedly As the Whirlwind Passeth, a novel of Australia that she began in 1898, but didn't publish until 1923. Her other works include The Moving Finger (1895), Kirkham's Find (1897), Deadman's (1898), Fools Rush In (1900), The Mummy Moves (1910), Alone in West Africa (1912), A Woman in China (1914), The Ends of the Earth (1915), A Wind From the Wilderness (1919), Where the Twain Meet (1922), The Forbidden Town (1926), Joan of the Pilchard (1930) and Worlds Away (1934).
