Born Mary Frances Leslie Miller, she married Ernest Ames, a railway engineer, and authored and illustrated children's books as Ernest Ames or Mrs. Ernest Ames. She wrote An ABC, for Baby Patriots (1899), which was used for teaching children the alphabet, and illustrated The Tremendous Twins; or How the Boers were beaten (1900) and Really and Truly! or, The century for babes, books of verse written by her husband Ernest.
From An ABC, for Baby Patriots, 1899:
A is the Army
That dies for the Queen;
It's the very best Army
That ever was seen,
B stands for Battles
By which England's name
Has for ever been covered
With glory and fame.
