Short biography
Maysie Greig flung 'her own vivid personality', humour and enthusiasm into telling a good story. Heeding Delamore McCay's advice to 'write every sentence as though I were to cable it to England at my own expense', she wrote over 220 novels with an unusual economy of words. She invariably gave her stories happy endings 'because I believe that happiness is the greatest virtue in the world and misery the greatest sin'. For forty years her books were best sellers on both sides of the Atlantic. Her novels were translated into French, Dutch, Portuguese, Swedish and Icelandic.
