Margery Allingham was born in 1904 in the London suburb of Ealing, and was brought up in Essex. She studied drama and speech training at Regent Street Polytechnic in the 1920s, marrying Philip Youngman Carter and moving back to Essex near Maldon. After various literary forays, she settled on mystery writing, and her gentleman sleuth Albert Campion, who made his first appearance in The Crime at Black Dudley (1929), was a great success and appeared in many novels and short stories, including The Beckoning Lady (1955). Margery Allingham died in Colchester in 1966.
