There is not much information concerning Ingram's life and death. We are unsure as to her birth- and death places, although we have assumed it to be the USA. She was a novelist who had a deal of success in the 1910s and early 1920s. She was reaching the pinnacle of success when her life was cut short at 35. The book with which she is best remembered is The Thing From the Lake (1921), her first and only horror novel. Popular at the time, but unfortunately now largely forgotten, it is a work that is probably one the best in its genre before the coming of H.P. Lovecraft. Her other works include The Game and the Candle (1909), The Flying Mercury (1910), Stanton Wins (1911), From the Car Behind (1912), The Unafraid (1913), A Man's Hearth (1915) and The Twice American (1917).
