Dulcie Gray Biography
Dulcie Gray, CBE was born 20 November 1915 and died 15 November 2011, it was her stage name and her full real name was Dulcie Winifred Catherine Bailey. She was born in Malaysia but soon came to Britain and was an actor on stage, screen and television as well as writing mystery fiction books. Her books were popular at the time and well regarded. The lack of American publications suggests that perhaps he first book didn't sell well and that she benefitted in the UK from her renown as an actress. The said, HRF Keating, whilst acknowledging the books may not be written to the most strict of rules do have charm and a well worth attention.
