Lucy Maud Montgomery (露西‧莫德‧蒙哥馬利) was born in Canada in 1874. Montgomery’s mother died when she was little. Then she lived with her grandparents on a farm that was the inspiration for ‘Green Gables’. Montgomery was an imaginative child. She liked boys’ activities like fishing, climbing trees and inventing scary ghost stories. She started writing stories at nine years old.
In 1894 Montgomery went to university. She continued writing and after university she worked as a teacher. Later she left to become a journalis. She wrote her stories before and after work. It was difficult and she soon quit her job to write full time.
