Short biography
The daughter of a clergyman, Ursula Bloom got an early start on her literary career at age 10 by running a children's magazine. She worked as a pianist in the cinema before marrying a wealthy lawyer, with whom she had a son. Following her husband's death during the influenza pandemic of 1918, she and her young son continued living in the exclusive seaside resort of Frinton-on-Sea in Essex. During this time, she became a journalist and also had a successful career as a court reporter, before marrying her second husband, a naval officer. She became one of Britain's most prolific romance novelists, publishing more than 400 books beginning in 1924.
She also wrote her father's biography, Parson Extraordinary (1963), and a book about her great-grandmother, who was of gypsy origins, The Rose of Norfolk: Frances Graver (1974).
