William John Locke (20 March 1863 – 15 May 1930)

was a novelist and playwright, born in Cunningsbury St George, Christ Church, Demerara, British Guyana. In 1894 he published his first novel, At the Gate of Samaria, but he did not achieve real success for another decade, with The Morals of Marcus Ordeyne (1905) and The Beloved Vagabond (1906). Chambers Biographical Dictionary wrote of his “long series of novels and plays which with their charmingly written sentimental themes had such a success during his life in both Britain and America… His plays, some of which were dramatized versions of his novels, were all produced with success on the London Stage

Read by: Ruth Golding (38:47) http://www.archive.org/download/multilingual_christmas_0912_librivox/09_english_christmasmystery_locke_rg.mp3

Richard Marsh (1857 – 1927)

was the pseudonym of the British author born Richard Bernard Heldmann. A best-selling and prolific author of the Victorian fin de siècle and the early Edwardian period, Marsh’s success rivaled that of contemporary writers of popular fiction such as Marie Corelli. He is best known today for his supernatural thriller The Beetle, which was published in the same year as Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1897) and was initially even more popular.

HELLO!

I’m Heather Ordover

Hi there and welcome!
I'm glad you found our little corner of the internet. It's a safe place to hang out, listen to a good book, and maybe get a little crafty while you do.
CraftLit has been going (almost) weekly since 2006 so we have quite a few books in our Library for you. If one isn't to your liking, I'm sure you'll find another that is.
Relax and let your ears do the reading for a bit.
