Kathleen Lindsay was a prolific author of historical romances. She was educated privately at the Convent of Sacré Coeur, Paris and the Sakkakini Convent, Cairo. A resident of South Africa later in life, it is probable that she lived for a time in Western Australia, as she contributed to the Western Mail. In a review of Lindsay's Here in Eden, the Bulletin's Red Page critic suggested that she 'appears to be an English authoress who has looked up some of our history at the Perth and Melbourne public libraries...' (July 25, 1951). In the acknowledgements for Loyal Lady (1965), Lindsay thanked F.L.W. Wood [Frederick Lloyd Whitfield Wood], whose Concise History of Australia (1935), given to her when she visited Melbourne in 1949, had been 'of the greatest help' when planning her Australian novels. Lindsay dedicated some of her books to her husband, Percy Edward Jeffryes.
