About Author

Ada Cambridge

Australian writer Ada Cambridge, afterwards known as Ada Cross, was born in England on November 21, 1844, and died on July 19, 1926. She produced around 25 pieces of fiction, three collections of poetry, and two autobiographies. She travelled to Australia after getting married to the Rev. George Frederick Cross in 1870. She spent a lot of time writing about her stay in Australia before her away in Melbourne in 1926. Dr. K. Stuart Cross, her son and daughter, were left to care for her. Cambridge started writing in the 1870s in an effort to support her family. Up the Murray, her first book, was published in 1875 but was not released independently. She did not become famous as a writer until 1890, with the release of A Marked Man. She served as the Women Writers Club's inaugural president and was given honorary life membership in Melbourne's Lyceum Club. She was recognized for her contribution to Australian writing by having Cambridge Street in Canberra named in her honor. There are now four Ada Cambridge Prizes, each of which has a monetary component. The first one was given out in 2005.
