Dorothy L. Sayers

Dorothy Sayers was born in Oxford to Reverend Henry Sayers. She grew up to major in modern languages and then work in publishing and later as a copywriter. She published her debut novel, Whose Body? in 1923, and it became the first of her fourteen-part mystery series. After first creating a play based on her mystery series, she began writing more plays, including The Man to Be Born King, which faced much opposition for having the character of Christ speak in modern English. Sayers passed away in England in 1956.
