Her first novel was published in 1911 : "In A German Pension." She didn't receive much notice, but in the next five years became an important contributor to European magazines.

Grief stricken by the loss over her brother's death during WW I, she also learned at that time that she had incurable tuberculosis.
In 1910, Mansfield married to give her unborn child a name and left her husband almost immediately, but unfortunately the child was stillborn. In 1912, she met John Middleton Murray, an editor, and they married in 1918.
