Personal Quote:

As far back as I can remember I have written poems and stories, but my professional writing life began in 1954. I started my first novel, "Madam, Will You Talk?" in 1952, with no intention of publishing it, but my husband persuaded me to send it away, and it was accepted. Before this I had had literary articles and poems published, but had never thought of publishing stories.


One of three children of Frederick A. Rainbow, a clergyman, and Mary Edith Rainbow, a New Zealand missionary. Mary began teaching in the late 1930s, but quit in 1956 to concentrate on writing novels. Her husband, Sir Frederick Henry Stewart (1916-2001), was a professor of geology at the University of Edinburgh. See more »
