As a young woman, Bagnold studied drawing and moved in artistic circles; friends included the sculptor Henri Gaudier-Breszka and the writers Katherine Mansfield and Vita Sackville-West. Her earliest books, A Diary without Dates (1918) and The Happy Foreigner (1920) record her experiences as a volunteer during World War I. She married Sir Roderick Jones in 1920, and had four children. Her best-known book National Velvet (1935) became a Hollywood film. After 1951 she devoted her time to writing plays, including The Chalk Garden (1955).
