Short biography
Sax Rohmer was born in Birmingham of Irish parents, William Ward and Margaret Mary (Furey) Ward. He received no formal schooling until he was nine or ten years old, but his father taught his son to read.

After finishing his schooling, Rohmer worked at numerous odd jobs. At the age of 20 he began his writing career with THE MYSTERIOUS MUMMY, which appeared in Pearson's Weekly in 1903. In 1909 he married Rose Elizabeth Knox, whose father had been a well-known comedian.

During the 1920s and 1930s, he was one of the most widely read magazine writers in the English language. After World War 2 the Rohmers moved to New York City, where he continued writing.
