Lewis began as a staff writer at the Chicago Times, and eventually became editor of the Chicago Times-Herald2 By the late 19th century he was writing muckraker articles for Cosmopolitan As an investigative journalist, Lewis wrote extensively about corruption in New York politics2 In 1901 he published a biography of Richard Croker 1843–1922, a leading figure in the corrupt political machine known as Tammany Hall, which exercised a great deal of control over New York politics from the 1790s to the 1960s For his next biography, When Men Grew Tall 1907, he turned a more forgiving eye to Andrew Jackson 1767–1845, the seventh President of the United States

As a writer of genre fiction, his most successful works were Westerns from his Wolfville series, which he continued writing until he died of gastrointestinal disease in 1914
