Author Bio for Duncan, Sara Jeannette

Author Image

Sara Jeannette Duncan (1861–1922) was a Canadian author and journalist. Born in Brantford, Ontario, she trained as a teacher but she soon began to concentrate on writing. In 1884 she worked for The Globe (now the Globe and Mail) writing articles and columns about literature and woman’s social life. In 1890 she married Everard Charles Cotes, a noted entomologist. She travelled with him to India where he was employed by the British government. After her marriage she concentrated on writing novels. Nine of her novels are set in India and most of her works are in the setting of Anglo-Indian society, of which she said "there is such abundance of material ... it is full of such picturesque incidence, such tragic chance". The progress of her novels show her experimenting with different genres that might sell well or were known to be popular, and they were of increasing complexity. Generally, she followed a nineteenth-century tradition of "society" novels in which personal and public politics might play a part. (Dictionary of Canadian Biography)
