Author Bio for Bailey, Temple

Author Image

Temple Bailey (1880-1953) was an American novelist and short story writer. Born in Virginia, she attended a girls' school for a time but poor health during her childhood meant that she was often tutored by her father at home. He paid close attention to her written English. As an adult, Bailey had no real desire to become an author but, "a season of stress and sorrow drove me to self-expression" and her 'scribbles' turned into stories that were soon being published in magazines such as the Ladies' Home Journal. Some of her stories were published as serials that were later turned into novels. Bailey preferred writing short stories thinking they were her most artistic work but found them harder to write than novels. She completed over 30 novels and her books sold in the millions. Bailey's style of featuring virginal heroines, conventional morality and happy ending seemed to fill her readers' needs for romance, the possibility of a better life and a happier world.
