After two years with the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank he became a full-time writer, contributing to a variety of periodicals. As well as his novels and short stories, he wrote lyrics for musical comedies, and at one stage had five shows running simultaneously on Broadway. At the age of 93, in the New Year-s Honours List of 1975, he received a long-overdue Knighthood, only to die on St Valentine's Day some 45 days later.
