Elinor M. Brent-Dyer was born in South Shields in 1894, where she remained until she took her first job as an unqualified teacher while still a teenager. Her only trip abroad -- to the Austrian Tirol -- led to her writing The School at the Chalet in 1925. Because of its success, Elinor wrote a further 57 books in the series, along with newsletters and annuals, as her fans grew in number. At the same time she continued with her teaching, and ran her own school for ten years before retiring to live with friends until her death in 1969.
