Educated at the University of Glasgow and Balliol College, Oxford, Brown was forced to leave school due to an illness in the family, but returned to graduate in 1895. He moved to London and took on various journalist positions while contributing stories and articles to magazines such as Blackwood's. In 1899, he published Love and a Sword, which was relatively successful. In 1901, his highly popular The House With the Green Shutters appeared to critical acclaim and it seemed he could look forward to a prosperous writing career. Unfortunately, the following year he died suddenly after contracting pneumonia. Apart from his two novels, he only produced articles and some short stories for magazines.
