B. M. Croker

Standard Name: Croker, B. M.
BMC was a sharp-eyed observer of people and places. Her nearly fifty novels (published between 1881 and 1917), and her stories in periodicals and collections, are often set either in her native Ireland or in British India (in the many different regions, including the Andaman Islands and what was later known as Burma or Myanmar, where she accompanied her husband when he was an army officer). Her novels are mostly romances or courtship stories, which have attracted recent critical comment from postcolonial scholars for what they reveal about British attitudes to British rule in India. Meanwhile her ghost stories continue to be actively circulated and consumed.
