J. Keighley Snowden was born in Preston in 1860 and started a long reporting career on the Keighley News, spent ten years in Birmingham and then joined the Yorkshire Post in 1893 as assistant leader-writer. Keighley Snowden had already sold several of his short stories set in Yorkshire to such journals as Black and White and Pall Mall Magazine, and the same year that he joined the Yorkshire Post he also finished his first collection of short stories, Tales of the Yorkshire Wolds.

In his tales he sketched scenes of life in the North West Riding, depicting memories and places he knew from his youth, acquired from his father and grandfather, both Yorkshiremen.
