P. C. Wren

a.k.a. Percival Christopher Wren

Author Code: EPCW

Born: Nov. 1, 1875 - Deptford, London, England

Died: Nov. 22, 1941 - London, England

Educated at Oxford University, where he received an MA degree, Wren spent five years traveling before returning to England and joining the British Cavalry. He claimed to have served in the French Foreign Legion for five years. but this has never been substantiated. He then worked for the Bombay government in India for some years before serving with the India Army in East Africa during the First World War. He returned to England in 1917 and settled in London and then concentrated on his literary career. His first published work was The Indian Teacher's Guide to the Theory and Practice of Mental, Moral and Physical Education (1910). While in India he published a number of educational treatises and, in 1912, published his first collection of stories, Dew and Mildew. His first popular novel, Snake and Sword appeared in 1914, but it wasn't until 1924, with the publication of Beau Geste that Wren finally made his literary mark. The book was an instant success and was made into a film on more than one occasion. His other works include Driftwood Spars (1916), Beau Sabreur (1926), Beau Ideal (1928), Valiant Dust (1932), Beggar's Horses (1934), Sinbad the Soldier (1935), The Man of a Ghost (1937), Paper Prison (1939) and The Uniform of Glory (1941).
