Short biography
Ellinor Davenport Adams (1859–1913) - sometimes credited as E. Davenport Adams, or E.D. Adams - was a late-nineteenth, early twentieth-century British author, who penned approximately twenty children's books. Many of her stories were aimed at girls, and straddled the line between the Victorian morality tale and the sweeter, more light-hearted fare that followed.

Adams was born in Pultney, London, in 1859, the daughter of nineteenth-century journalist and author W.H. (William Henry) Davenport Adams. Her eldest brother was William Davenport Adams, also a journalist and author, and the creator of the Dictionary of English Literature (1877). Her sister Florence likewise worked as a journalist. Adams began writing in her late twenties. She died in 1913. (sources: The Encyclopaedia of Girls' School Stories, The "At the Circulating Library: A Database of Victorian Fiction" website)
