She studied music in London and Paris and the classics at University College, London. At the age of nineteen she married Reginald Walpole Craigie.

Her first play, Journeys End in Lovers' Meeting, was performed in 1894 and starred Ellen Terry. Her most successful play was The Ambassador which opened in 1898 and featured Sir George Alexander, H.B. Irving, Violet Vanbrugh, Fay Davis and Kate Sargeantson.
