Short biography
Born Kathleen Mansfield Beauchamp into a prominent Australian family living in colonial New Zealand, she published her first stories in her high school paper and magazine. She went to London in 1903 to attend university with her sisters. She befriended several modernist writers such as Virginia Woolf and traveled in Europe. She took Katherine Mansfield as her pen name and began submitting her stories to magazines such as Rhythm, which is how she met editor John Middleton Murry. They were married in 1918. Mansfield had been diagnosed with tuberculosis the year before and sought unconventional treatments and a better climate, measures which failed to help her. Despite her untimely death, she produced a large body of work, primarily short stories.
