Working as a teacher, Margo Antink wrote various short stories for periodicals, and published her first novel in 1899. After marrying the poet and critic Carel Scharten, they began to write novels together. Their first success came in 1908 with "Een huis vol menschen". The couple became fairly popular with their novels, which had many religious and Italian influences. This was also true for the work "The nar van Maremmen" (The Fool of Maremma), which they entered in the 1928 Olympic literature competition and which won a bronze medal. Scharten-Antink and her husbaned had settled in Florence in 1924 and remained there until their death.
