About J. M. Barrie

J. M. Barrie was born in 1860. Fascinated by stories of his mother's life, he was determined to write and worked on the Nottingham Journal after graduating from Edinburgh University. In 1885 he successfully sold the Auld Licht Idylls, which were based on his mother's tales. By the time Peter Pan opened on the London stage in 1904, Barrie had written more than thirty novels and plays, such as Quality Street and The Admirable Crichton. He was created a baronet in 1913, awarded the Order of Merit in 1922 and died in 1937.
