Writing and Life
Works By
L. T. Meade was phenomenal in her output and prided herself on her professionalism. Among her nearly 280 titles (published in the later nineteenth century), most are novels or stories for girls and young women. Others, however (a good many of them written with male collaborators), are mystery or detective stories (some with a touch of the supernatural), or tales of doctors and hospitals in the grindingly poor parts of London. L. T. Meade also founded and edited a periodical for girls, and wrote both long and short fiction for adults.
5 June 1844 Elizabeth Thomasina Meade (later LTM) was born at Bandon, Cork, in "a pretty little vicarage in the heart of the country." Bibliographic Citation link.
By 13 November 1886 LTM published A World of Girls: The Story of a School, which Helen C. Black called her most successful book. Bibliographic Citation link.
26 October 1914 LTM died at her home in Oxford, aged about seventy. Bibliographic Citation link.
