After World War II he worked as an editor, free-lance writer, teacher, lecturer, and translator before eventually returning to writing full time. In 1946, his first novel, The Fingers of Night, was published followed by two more novels in subsequent years. Hubert Creekmore died on May 23, 1966 in New York.
