She was born in Dublin, Ireland, the daughter of George Sigerson, a surgeon and writer, and Hester (née Varian) also a writer. She was a major figure of the Irish Literary Revival, publishing many collections of poetry from 1893. Her friends included Katharine Tynan, a noted Irish-born poet and author, Rose Kavanagh and Alice Furlong, writers and poets.[1]

In 1895 she married Clement King Shorter, an English journalist and literary critic. They lived together in London, until her death.[2]
