Short biography
Edmee Elizabeth Monica de la Pasture was the daughter of Elizabeth Lydia Bonham, a novelist who wrote under the name Mrs. Henry de la Pasture, and Count Henry Philip Ducarel de la Pasture. She worked with the Voluntary Aid Detachment (VAD) during World War I and these experiences formed the basis of her novel The War Workers (1918). She married Paul Dashwood, a civil engineer turned land agent, and had two children. She wrote more than 30 popular novels under the pseudonym E.M. Delafield. Her most famous book, Diary of a Provincial Lady, began as a column in the feminist weekly Time and Tide. She died aged only 53. Her daughter is the author R M Dashwood.
