Daisy Bacon was born in Union City, Pennsylvania, and eventually migrated to New York City in the 1920s. While her writing career was in its infancy, she answered a job listing at Street & Smith Publications and eventually became the editor of Love Story Magazine.
Under her direction, Love Story Magazine, became the top-ranking newsstand seller -- and the only weekly -- among women's magazines. Known as a "lucky" editor for giving new writers their start, she received and read thousands of unsolicited manuscripts each year. During World War II, Miss Bacon edited Detective Story Magazine, and was the final editor of The Shadow and Doc Savage, the most famous superheroes of the pulp magazine era.
Miss Bacon retired in the 1950s and penned Love Story Writer. Much of her retirement was devoted to writing. In the 1960s, she began her own publishing imprint, Gemini Books.
Miss Bacon died in 1986 at her home in Port Washington, NY, at the age of 87 years.
