BIOGRAPHY AND BIBLIOGRAPHY

L. T. Meade (Mrs. Elizabeth Thomasina Smith), English novelist, was born at Bandon, County Cork, Ireland, 1854, the daughter of Rev. R. T. Meade, Rector of Novohal, County Cork, and married Toulmin Smith in 1879. She wrote her first book, Lettie's Last Home , at the age of seventeen and since then has been an unusually prolific writer, her stories attaining wide popularity on both sides of the Atlantic.

She worked in the British Museum, living in Bishopsgate Without, making special studies of East London life which she incorporated in her stories. She edited Atlanta for six years. Her pictures of girls, especially in the influence they exert on their elders, are drawn with intuitive fidelity; pathos, love, and humor, as in Daddy's Girl , flowing easily from her pen. She has traveled extensively, being devoted to motoring and other outdoor sports.

Among more than fifty novels she has written, dealing largely with questions of home life, are: David's Little Lad ; Great St. Benedict's ; A Knight of To day (1877); Miss Toosey's Mission ; Bel Marjory (1878); Laddie; Outcast Robbin, or, Your Brother and Mine ; A Cry from the Great City ; White Lillie and Other Tales ; Scamp and I ; The Floating Light of Ringfinnan ; Dot and Her Treasures ; The Children's Kingdom: the Story of Great Endeavor ; The Water Gipsies ; A Dweller in Tents ; Andrew Harvey's Wife ; Mou setse: A Negro Hero (1880); Mother Herring's Chickens (1881); A London Baby: the Story of King Roy (1883); Hermie's Rose Buds and Other Stories ; How it all Came Round ; Two Sisters (1884); Autocrat of the Nursery ; Tip Cat ; Scarlet Anemones ; The Band of Three ; A Little Silver Trumpet ; Our Little Ann ; The Angel of Love (1885); A World of Girls (1886); Beforehand ; Daddy's Boy ; The O'Donnells of Inchfawn ; The Palace Beautiful ; Sweet Nancy (1887); Deb and the Duchess (1888); Nobody's Neighbors ; Pen (1888); A Girl from America (1907).
