Winifred Gertrude Walker was born in Urichsville, Ohio on January 4, 1910 and studied journalism at Ohio State University. She moved to Hollywood after World War II, where she acted as a comedian and singer in local theatrical productions, writing jokes for stand‐up comedians as well as doing a bit of acting. Walker was hired as a writer by Republic Pictures and wrote scripts and stories for about ten B‐films during the 1940s. In 1947 she published her first novel, the well‐received So Deadly Fair. She only wrote two other novels, the last of which—The Suspect,.—was an updated novelization of her script for the 1943 film Whispering Footsteps. In later years Walker made a living as a ghostwriter and freelancer. She died in Palm Desert, California on December 15, 1994.
