Alice Caroline Moon wrote a number of short stories, published in NSW newspapers. Alice Moon lived on A'Beckett Road for some years in the 1880s building "The Steyne". She was involved in a number of business ventures among them being a partner of Miss Harriet Elphinstone Dick in the Ladies' Gymnasium in Melbourne, and running the Central Restaurant for some years. It is likely that she was already a journalist in Melbourne. On moving to Sydney she wrote book reviews for the Sydney Morning Herald and the Daily Telegraph. Alice died in 1894 at age 38. One of her short stories, "Old Denny", was set in Upper Beaconsfield. Have a read of it.
