  • ADMINISTRATIVE/ BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY

    Ethel Turner was born in England in 1870. In 1879 she migrated to Australia with her mother and two sisters. The family settled in Sydney where Ethel and her sister Lilian attended Sydney Girls High School. They both edited a schoolgirls' magazine, 'Iris', and later the 'Parthenon', a literary magazine which ran for three years. In 1892 Ethel took over the children's page in the 'Illustrated Sydney News'. Her first novel, 'Seven Little Australians', was published in 1894. It was an immediate success and has been in print ever since. It was followed by a sequel, 'The Family at Misrule', in 1895. She married a lawyer, H.R. Curlewis in 1896 and by the time of her death in 1958 had published 27 novels as well as numerous short stories and poems.
