Dorothea Moore

Dorothea Moore was born in Islington in 1881 to William and Alice Moore. Her father was ordained in 1882, and served as curate and later as priest in charge at such places as Romsey, Horningsham and Mereworth. Dorothea Moore was educated at Godolphin School and Cheltenham Ladies’ College. Apparently lame as a child, she turned to writing and went on to produce many books for girls, including historical novels and Ruritanian and adventure stories as well as her school stories. She was a keen Guider and wrote a number of books that featured Girl Guides. Moore also had at least two plays professionally produced and, according to The Encyclopaedia of Girls’ School Stories, may have toured with the Alexander Maclean Company for the 1911–12 season. She died in 1933.
