Further Information
Marie Belloc Lowndes was born in England in 1868 and was the sister of the author Hilaire Belloc. She wrote extensively, and was an important figure in the development of the genre. She is perhaps best known today for The Lodger, a sought after book, in some part due to the Jack the Ripper style connection. It does demonstrate her talent though, and is a book that still stands up well today. As well as the criminous work listed above she also wrote eleven other novels, short stories, plays and works of non-fiction. She passed away in 1947.
