Short biography
Mary Eliza Bakewell Gaunt was the daughter of a judge, and became one of the first two women permitted to attend the University of Melbourne. In 1894, she married Dr. Hubert Lindsay Miller, who died in 1900, leaving her to live off what she earned from her writing. She had pubished her first novel, Dave's Sweetheart, the same year as her marriage. From 1900 she lived in England and Italy, and travelled extensively in Africa and Asia. She's best remembered today for her novel Kirkham’s Find (1897), which had a strongly feminist slant. Gaunt's 1910 novel The Uncounted Cost was banned by English libraries because the heroine did not "pay the price" for her wilful and determined independence. Gaunt also wrote several historical novels and travel books.
