We know..[edit | edit source]

In bullet summary, we know:

  • The above birthdate is probably correct.
  • She was born in England not Australia as some would have it.

People have asked Google (http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview?id=249465) about this woman. Details are few and nobody but nobody seem to know anything.

Three volumes[edit | edit source]

She has written three volumes of direct and often distinguished verse, the best of which may be found in Songs to Save a Soul (1915) and Before Dawn (1918). The latter volume is dedicated to A. de Sélincourt, to whom she was married in 1919.

It's unclear which of these volumes Is Love, then, so Simple came from, but the evidence suggests that she did indeed write it.
