Author Bio: Thomas B. Costain

Thomas B. Costain (1885–1965) was born in Brantford. He attended high school there as well as the Brantford Collegiate Institute. His career as a writer began in 1902 when the Brantford Courier accepted a mystery story from him, and he became a reporter there (for five dollars a week). He was an editor at the Guelph Daily Mercury between 1908 and 1910. He married Ida Randolph Spragge on January 12, 1910 and they had two children. Beginning in 1914, he was a staff writer for and, from 1917, editor of Toronto-based Maclean’s magazine. His success there brought him to the attention of the Saturday Evening Post in New York City where he was fiction editor for fourteen years.
