Birth: May 28, 1877
Southend-on-Sea
Essex, England
Death: Apr. 20, 1950

He was a prolific English novelist and short story writer, whose most famous novel was Sorrell and Son (1925). he was educated at Merchant Taylors' School. He proceeded to Trinity College, Cambridge to study medicine and science, and then to Middlesex Hospital to finish his medical training. During the First World War, he served in the Royal Army Medical Corps. Deeping later gave up his job as a doctor to become a full-time writer. His early work is dominated by historical romances. His later novels can be seen as attempts at keeping alive the spirit of the Edwardian age. He was one of the best selling authors of the 1920s and 1930s, with seven of his novels making the best-seller list. George Orwell was a strong critic of Deeping's, criticising his melodramatic plots. Deeping also published fiction in several US magazines, including the Saturday Evening Post and Adventure. He married Phyllis Maude Merrill and lived up to his death in Eastlands on Brooklands Road in Weybridge, Surrey.
