Short biography
Patricia Guilia Caulfield Kate Rubinstein was born in London to an Irish mother and father of Lithuanian descent. She was educated in London and started work on her first book, 'Autumn Term', just after the end of WW2; it was published in 1948. She eventually wrote 10 novels featuring the Marlow family and their various adventures both at Kingscote School and at home, and a further two historical novels about their forbears, as well as 'The Thursday Kidnapping', which is unrelated. Her books enjoy cult status and copies are eagerly sought-after.
