Author Bio for Craik, Dinah Maria Mulock

Author Image

Dinah Craik (1826-1887) was an English novelist. She was the daughter of Thomas Mulock, a non-conformist minister. She was a bright and precocious youngster and helped her mother teach school when she was 13. Her mother separated from her father and after her mother's death she was left with the responsibility of raising her younger siblings. She turned to writing to earn money for their upkeep. Her first book, published in 1849 was a children's book. A year later she published her first novel, "The Ogilvies", about the problem of marriage choice, a popular theme at the time. Her reputation was assured by a best seller, "John Halifax, Gentleman" published in 1856. She married in 1865 but continued to write both fiction and non-fiction. She died suddenly in Kent of a heart attack during preparations for her daughter's wedding. (The Oxford Guide to British Women Writers)
