Nancy Huston was born in Morganfield, Kentucky, the daughter of Judge George Huston and Sallie Brady Huston. She received her education at the Convent of St. Vincent. Banks served on the Board of Lady Managers at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, where she worked as a writer and editor. Banks relocated to New York to seek a writing career in the early 1890s. She worked as a book reviewer for The Bookman magazine during its first year of publication. She also resided in London for a while and reported from South Africa during the Boer War for a London newspaper.
