Born in Whitby, North Yorkshire, Margaret Ethel Jameson studied at Leeds University and King's College, London. The author of 45 novels, poems, essays and reviews, Jameson managed to earn a living primarily through writing after 1928 enjoying a bohemian and anarchic life in London. Her first novel was published in 1919 but The Lovely Ship (1927) part of the trilogy; The Triumph of Time was the first to be critically acclaimed. Several of her novels were inspired by her knowledge of Europe and a love of France and include The Black Laurel (1948), A Cup of Tea for Mr Thorgill (1957) and The White Crow (1968). She campaigned vigorously for many writers threatened by fascist governments in Europe.
