Information on Authors

Ursula Horsley-Smith

(Mary) Ursula Horsley-Smith, an English author of children’s books, was born in Richmond, Surrey, England July 4, 1908. She was the eldest of 3 daughters of a clergyman, Cyril James Horsley-Smith, although a younger brother died upon birth. While not a writer by profession (she worked many years for the Bank of England), she authored four books for children and published a few short stories. All of her books were illustrated by Rosemary Cosgrave, a childhood friend. She married Arthur Leslie Warren who died in 1976. Ursula died on October 23, 2005 in Middleton-on-Sea, West Sussex, at 97.

Neither the author nor her books are well-known, but her books are still sought by those who remember her adventurous tales of children who enter other worlds. All of Horsley-Smith's books are scarce.
