Educated at Shipley School in Bryn Mawr, the Ohio Mechanics Institute in Cincinnati and the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music where she studied violin, Boyle settled in New York City in 1922 and began working as a writer/editor. Later that year she married Richard Brault, a French exchange student, and the couple moved to France. The marriage was short-lived and she had an affair with the magazine editor Ernest Walsh with whom she had a daughter. In 1928, she met Laurence Vail whom she would live with for some years until both his and her divorces were finalized. In 1929, she published Wedding Day, a collection of short stories which was well-received. Her short stories won two O. Henry Awards during the 1930s. Many of Boyle's novel are autobiographical in nature, drawing on her experiences in France and Europe and several marriages. She wrote many successful novels during the 1930s beginning with Plagued by the Nightengale in 1930. Boyle also wrote some poetry and many short stories which solidified her literary reputation. She was blacklisted during the McCarthy era of the early 1950s and only cleared in 1957. She taught at Wagner College in 1962 and from 1963 to 1979 at San Francisco State College. She was an activist throughout her life including protesting the Vietnam War, supporting Amnesty International and civil rights and the NAACP. Her many works include Year Before Last (1932), A Statement (1932), Gentlemen, I Address You Privately (1933), The White Horses of Vienna (1935), Death of a Man (1936), Monday Night (1938), Prime for Combat (1942), Thirty Stories (1946), The Seagull on the Step (1955), Collected Poems (1962), Nothing Ever Breaks Except the Heart (1966), The Underground Women (1975), Fifty Stories (1980) and Winter Night (1993 Posthumous).
