About Author

J. M. Barrie

Sir James Matthew Barrie, 1st Baronet, was a Scottish author and dramatist who is best known for creating Peter Pan. He lived from 9 May 1860 to 19 June 1937. He was raised and schooled in Scotland before relocating to London, where he penned several well-received books and plays. There, he met the Llewelyn Davies brothers, who subsequently served as the model for his works Peter Pan and The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up, both of which were based on the 1904 West End "fairy play" about an immortal boy and an everyday girl named Wendy who go on adventures in the fantastical realm of Neverland. The story of a baby boy who has magical adventures in Kensington Gardens was first included in Barrie's 1902 adult novel The Little White Bird. Despite his ongoing success as a writer, Peter Pan eclipsed his earlier works and is credited with making the name Wendy more well-known. After the deaths of the Davies boys' parents, Barrie adopted the boys clandestinely. George V created Barrie a baronet on June 14, 1913, and in the New Year's Honours of 1922, he was inducted into the Order of Merit. Before his passing, he donated the Peter Pan works' rights to London's Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, which still reaps their benefits.
