Short biography
According to the study guide for her 1968 book "Great Ambitions, A Story of the Early Years of Charles Dickens": Elisabeth Kyle was born Agnes Mary Robertson Dunlop in Ayr, Scotland, to James and Elizabeth Riddle Dunlop. Her father often paraphrased the classics for his daughter while suppressing those books that he felt were either poorly written or undesirable for children. Although he died when she was only nine, Kyle's father undoubtedly influenced her later life. Kyle revealed that she often told stories just to pass the time, but as a child had no real desire to become a writer.
