About the author, Maud Hart Lovelace
Maud Hart Lovelace, was born April 25, 1892, in Mankato, Minnesota. When Maud was 10, a booklet of her poems was printed; and by age eighteen, she had sold her first short story.
The Hart family left Mankato shortly after Maud’s high school graduation in 1910 and settled in Minneapolis, where Maud attended the University of Minnesota. In 1917, she married Delos W. Lovelace, a newspaper reporter who later became a popular writer of short stories.
