Hector Bolitho was born in Auckland on 28 May 1897 to Henry Bolitho, a hairdresser who also designed and printed the world’s first airmail stamps, and Etheldred Frances (nee Bushe).
Bolitho left school at 15 without seeking permission from his parents, and joined the staff of the New Zealand Herald. He moved on to the Auckland Star in 1915. Bolitho became a corporal in the New Zealand Army at the outbreak of World War I, and was stationed at Featherston Military Camp near Wairarapa where he met Christian educationalist and founder of Reed Publishing, A. H. Reed.
After the war, Bolitho wrote The Island of Kawau (1919), the first of 59 titles he would pen.
