Author William John Locke was born in British Guiana to English parents, and graduated from Cambridge in mathematics. He held various teaching positions, but disliked teaching, and sought to make a living as an author. His many novels and stories, witty and widely appealing, were consistently popular, although his later work, written in haste, is sketchy by comparison. He also wrote plays, and had a lifelong interest in architecture.
