Author Code: EAMT

Born: Jan. 30, 1890 - Kensington, London, England

Educated at Claude Montefiore's Frobel Institute in London, St. Paul's Girls School and a finishing school in Paris. She married in 1911 and had three children. She divorced in 1917 following the death of her daughter. The following year she married George Lancelot Thirkell, a Tasmanian engineer. In 1920, the couple left for Australia on a troop-ship. Thirkell would later use the experience in her novel, Trooper to the Southern Cross (1934). They settled in Melbourne and Thirkell began to contribute articles and short stories to Australian and English magazines. When her husband's business failed during the Depression, Thirkell left him and returned to England in 1929. Once back in England she began a prolific writing period which saw no less than 35 novels, numerous short stories and a great deal of journalism. She adopted Anthony Trollope's Barsetshire as the setting for some 29 of her novels and became one of the most widely-read female authors of the 1940s and 1950s. Her works includes Three Houses (1931), High Rising(1933), Wild Strawberries (1934), August Folly (1936), Pomfret Towers (1938), Before Lunch (1940), Miss Bunting (1945), Love Among the Ruins (1948), The Duke's Daughter (1951), Jutland Cottage (1953), Never Too Late (1956) and Three Score and Ten (1961 Posthumous).
