from Wikipedia:
Edith Joan Lyttelton (1873 - 1945) was an Australasian author, who wrote as G B Lancaster. She was born in Tasmania and brought up (from 1879) on a sheep station in Canterbury, New Zealand. She produced 13 novels, a collection of stories, two serialised novels and over 250 stories.
She was New Zealand's most widely read writer of the first half of the twentieth century. She wrote about the formation of colonial identity and the legacy of imperialism in the lives of settlers and their descendents. Her settings were Australia, Canada and New Zealand. She was influenced by Rudyard Kipling and R L Stevenson. Her first success was with THE LAW-BRINGERS (1913), which was made into a Hollywood feature film in the 1920s (as was THE ALTAR STAIRS), PAGEANT (1933) topped the American best-seller list for six months. Other successes were PROMENADE (1938) and GRAND PARADE (1943).
She left New Zealand in 1909 for London, where she died in a nursing home on 10 March 1945.
