Author Bio for Dell, Ethel M.

Author Image

Ethel Dell (1881-1939) was an English novelist. She was born in Streatham, London. She was taught at home by her mother and then attended the Streatham College for Girls where she wrote stories for her classmates. Her first novel, "The Way of an Eagle" was rejected 13 times by publishers. After numerous redrafts it was published and became an instant bestseller. She published 35 more books as well as collections of short stories and poems. Her novels invariably had happy endings. The form of her novels followed popular social ideals with marriage reigning supreme and her heros and heroines rarely indulging in sex before marriage. In 1922 she married Lieutenant-Colonel Gerald Savage and they retired to the country. She continued to write books and published her last novel in 1939, the year of her death.
