Norah Hoult

Norah Hoult (10 September 1898 – 6 April 1984) was an Irish writer. Born in Dublin, Norah was orphaned when she was still a child, and was sent to live with their father’s relations in England. Once there, she and her brother studied in various boarding schools.

Norah worked as a journalist for the Sheffield Daily Telegraph. After her first book Poor Women (1928), was published, and due to its critical acclaim, she became a full-time writer. She lived in Dublin, New York and London, where she settled in 1939. In 1957, she returned to Ireland. Norah died there in 1984.
