Author Bio for Pickthall, Marjorie Lowry Christie

Author Image

Marjorie Pickthall (1883-1922) was a Canadian poet and novelist. She was born in England but her family emigrated to Canada when she was six. Educated at St. Mildred's Girls School and Bishop Strachan School for Girls, her parents encouraged her reading and writing and musical talents. She published her first story, "Two Ears", at the age of 15 in the Toronto Globe and also wrote stories for the Mail and Empire. In 1910, she took the death of her mother particularly hard and she needed the help of poet friend Helena Coleman to get her back on her feet with a job as librarian at Victoria College. Over the next eight years she journeyed to England and then eventually to British Columbia where she settled on Vancouver Island. During her travels and sojourns in England and B.C. she continued to write both poems and novels. She died of a blood clot following surgery to correct health problems which she suffered throughout her life.
