About Author

Dinah Maria Mulock Craik

Dinah Maria Mulock was born on April 20, 1826, in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England. She is frequently referred to as Miss Mulock or Mrs. Craik. Her best-known work is the novel John Halifax, Gentleman, which depicts the aspirations of English middle-class life in the middle of the nineteenth century. His uncertain circumstances had an impact on her upbringing and early years, but she received a decent education from a variety of sources and was inspired to pursue a career as a writer. She arrived in London in 1846, at the same time as her friends Charles Edward Mudie and Alexander Macmillan. She married George Lillie Craik in 1865, the nephew of George Lillie Craik, and a partner with Alexander Macmillan in the publishing house Macmillan & Company. In 1849, Mulock published her first books, and in 1853, she gathered them in Avillion and Other Tales. Nothing New, a compilation with a similar theme, was published in 1857. She released John Halifax, Gentleman in 1857, which outlined the ideals of English middle-class living. A Life for a Life (1859), Mulock's subsequent significant book, earned more money and was maybe more extensively read than John Halifax at the time. Later, Craik moved back to fantastical stories, and The Little Lame Prince was a hit (1874).
