Lolah Burford, née Egan, was born in Dallas, Texas to a old Texas pioneering family. She graduated from The Hockaday School and entered Bryn Mawr College at age 16. She went to graduate school back in Texas at Southern Methodist University, where she met her husband William S. Burford, a poet and professor, with whom she had three daughters. Their academic careers took them to Missoula, Montana, where she began her writing career. The first of her six novels, Vice Avenged: A Moral Tale, was published in 1971. She was also a founder of Midsummer Playhouse on Long Island, and taught drama at the Norfleet School in New York.
