"Like many of the 19th-century women who wrote series for children, Katherine Kent Child Walker (Mrs. Edward Ashley Walker) came from a religious background. And, like several of her counterparts, she drew on her own life for some of her publications, especially after her marriage. In contrast with many married series authors, however, Walker wrote her juvenile series when she was single. After her marriage, most of her publications were in periodicals. Whether writing articles for adults or relating anecdotes about her daughter for children's magazines, Walker often adopted a light-hearted tone, and her best-known piece is the humorous "The Total Depravity of Inanimate Things" (1864)."
