Biography's Source:

Educated at Eton and Oxford, Richard Marsh (1857-1915) started full-time writing at an early age and went on to publish over seventy books. He travelled widely, had many friends in the theatre and was a fanatical devotee of all sports, spending many days at Wimbledon and Lords.

Marsh specialised in three kinds of fiction, all successful: humourous stories (featuring among others solicitor's office boy, Sam Briggs); detective stories (in which he invented one of the first fictional women detectives, Judith Lee); and tales of terror and the supernatural. It is for his novel in the last category The Beetle that he is now remembered.
