Clyde came to New Zealand as a child, and was educated at Otago Girls' High School. She moved to Sydney in 1898, and wrote for the Sydney Bulletin. In an essay entitled 'The Literary Woman', she urged women to continue "to make brilliant discoveries in the realm of the emotions". In her novel A Pagan's Love, questions of women's dependence were raised, with the heroine considering an extra-marital relationship with a man.
