Denise Robins was an English writer of historical romances. She was born in London and educated at Streatham Hill High School and at Pitman’s Central Commercial School. After a short period working in an accountant’s office, she became a full-time writer.
Her first book, Infatuation, was published in 1913. It was followed by over ninety others, including The Heart of a Rose (1914), The Black Moth (1921), and The Flame is Mine (1937). Many of her novels were made into films, including The Flame is Mine, which was adapted into the film noir classic The Letter (1940).
Robins was a prolific writer, and her novels were hugely popular in the early twentieth century. However, she is largely forgotten today.
