Lucy Maude Montgomery – November 30, 1874 – April 24, 1942
In 1893, Maud gained a teacher’s license from Prince of Wales College, and though not quite 20 years old, was put in charge of a classroom. But she had always had the dream of being a writer. She began writing short stories and poems, they were often met with rejection. But with a firm belief in herself, she persevered. At age 21 she sold her first short story for five dollars, and never looked back. She created her beloved tale of a red-haired orphan, Anne of Green Gables.
