Titles Only in Alphabetical Order
At the age of eleven, Miss Lucy started submitting manuscripts to magazines and at fifteen her first poem was published in a small newspaper in Canada. Born and raised in the small town of Cavendish, Prince Edward Island was her home. Her grandparents had the care of her and sometimes they were hard put to know what to do with this busy young girl.
Her favorite authors growing up were John Bunyan, Edward Bulwer-Lyton, Sir Walter Scott, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Jane Austen, and the Bronte sisters. During her lifetime she wrote twenty-three books of fiction, a short autobiography, five hundred poems, five hundred stories for popular magazines, and ten volumes of personal diaries (more than five thousand pages).
Ms. Montgomery was inducted into the Royal Society of Great Britain in 1923, the first Canadian woman to be so honored, and was made an officer in the Order of the British Empire in 1935. In 1935 she was also selected for the Literary and Artistic Institute of France.
