She studied drama at the Regent Street Polytechnic from 1920, and during this time wrote several plays and published her first novel, "Blackkerchief Dick" (1923), at age nineteen. Her first detective story was "The White Cottage Mystery", serialized in the Daily Express in 1927, and in 1929 she published "The Crime at Black Dudley", which introduced her most famous creation, Albert Campion. She went on to produce seventeen novels and more than twenty short stores featuring the character. The last Campion novel, "A Cargo of Eagles" (1968), was finished by her husband following her death from breast cancer at age 62. The Campion novels have been adapted into a movie, "Tiger in the Smoke" (1956) and a British television show (1989 to 1990), and remain in print to this day.
