Short biography
Daisy Ashford was the pen name of Margaret Ashford Devlin, the daughter of a government official. She was educated largely at home with her sisters. A child prodigy, she began writing or dictating stories as a very young child though she was not published until years later. In 1920, she married James Devlin and settled in Norfolk, at one time running the King's Arms Hotel in Reepham. She was best known for The Young Visitors, or Mr. Salteena’s Plan, a novella about upper-class society of late 19th-century England. It was published in 1919 and is said to have been written when she was only 9 years old. The Young Visitors was adapted for the stage several times, including as a musical comedy.
