He was the son of an Anglican minister, meant for a profession in the church but devoted to story writing in its place. A few of those who motivated him were the novelists Henry James and Arnold Bennett. His talent at background-sceneries and flamboyant themes, and his notoriety as a lecturer, has taken him into a wide audience in the United Kingdom and North America. His writings were best sellers during the 1920s and 1930s but has been immensely forgotten when he died. After his first book, The Wooden Horse, Hugh wrote creatively, creating at best one story each year. He was an artless narrator, authoring fast to get all his thoughts on paper, rarely editing. His first book to earn foremost fame was his third, Mr. Perrin and Mr. Traill, a bittersweet tale of a deadly collision of the two school teachers.
