At the time Mary (nee Juliet Reilly) entered show business around 1907, there was quite a stigma attached to the acting profession. Though Mary's parents were separated, her father forbade his wife and children to use his name of Reilly on stage. All three ended up with the last name of Shelby, which came from relatives on Mary's mother's side of the family. By 1911 "Little Juliet Shelby" became a well-known Broadway child actress.

After getting married she wrote sentimental romance novels to help make ends meet. These were only moderately successful. Then she decided to go all out and write a selacious novel about a three-week love affair between an exotic woman and an upper-class man. "Three Weeks" was an instant scandal in 1907. Like "Lady Chatterly's Lover" and "Peyton Place", it was vilified from the world's pulpits while becoming a worldwide smash (although not as well written as either of those books). Initially banned for a time in the United States and Great Britain, "Three Weeks" provided Madame Glyn, as she was sometimes called, with lifetime financial security.
Bates' grandfather, Memphis attorney Finis Langdon Bates, wrote the book "The Escape and Suicide of John Wilkes Booth" in 1907. It is said to be Bates' non-fiction account of hearing a deathbed confession from a man who claimed to be Abraham Lincoln's assassin, Booth, who had escaped capture and lived under another name out west.
