Short biography
Kate Langley Bosher was born in Norfolk, Virginia, at the end of the Civil War. She graduated from the Norfolk College for Young Ladies. In 1887, she married Charles Gideon Bosher, a Richmond businessman. She was devoted to several charitable and reform causes, especially women's suffrage and the welfare of orphans and abandoned children. With Lila Meade Valentine, she founded the Equal Suffrage League of Virginia and spoke in public for women's right to vote. She wrote 10 novels in 20 years, the first of which appeared in 1899 under a pseudonym. Her third book, Mary Cary, Frequently Martha (1910) was a bestseller, and was adapted into the 1921 silent film Nobody's Kid.
