Short biography
Catherine Moody was the daughter of a wine merchant. She began writing poetry at an early age. In 1823, she married Captain Charles Gore, a British army officer, with whom she had 10 children. In the course of her career, Catherine Gore, known as Mrs. Gore, supported her family by writing more than 60 novels and articles for journals, plays for the London stage, and lyrics for popular songs. Her first play, The School for Coquettes (1831) was successfully produced at the Haymarket theatre. Most of her novels were set in fashionable and wealthy households, a style she varied with travel writing and historical romances. Her best known works included Mothers and Daughters (1831) and The Banker’s Wife (1843). In 1850, she inherited a large estate, and the prolific flow of her writing declined after that. Following the death of her first husband in 1846, she married a younger son of the Marquess of Bath and became Mrs. Edward Thynne.
