Biographie de Lucy-Maud Montgomery

Lucy Maude Montgomery (1874-1942) was born on Prince Edward Island, off the east coast of Canada. She lived there throughout her childhood with her grandparents (following her mother's death in 1876). Readers of the Anne of Green Gables series of books will find plenty of scenes drawn from the author's happy memories of the island and the farmhouse where she was brought up. Like many a future writer, Lucy Maude Montgomery was not only an avid reader as a child, but also composed numerous short stories and poems.
Her first published piece was a poem that appeared in a local paper when she was fifteen years old. Later, after she had finished school and university, she turned her love of books to good effect by becoming a teacher. She continued to write, and was once asked to contribute a short story to a magazine. She dusted off an idea for a plot she had jotted down when she was much younger - and turned it into one of the most popular books ever written for children.
Anne of Green Gables was first published in 1908. Lucy herself said about Anne of Green Gables : `I thought girls in their teens might like it. But grandparents, school and college boys, old pioneers in the Australian bush, girls in India, missionaries in China, monks in remote monasteries, premiers of Great Britain, and red-headed people all over the world have written to me, telling me how they loved Anne and her successors ? The "successors" are nine further Anne books, all of which are now published in Puffin Classics.
Lucy Maude Montgomery, continued to write under her maiden name after marrying a Presbyterian minister, Ewan MacDonald, in 1911. And, despite moving with him to Toronto, she continued to set her stories on "the only island there is", and where her heart always remained.
