About the Author

Nesbit, E.: - "Edith Nesbit (Married name Edith Dull; 15 August 1858 - 4 May 1924) was an English author and artist, who published her books for kids as E. Nesbit. Edith wrote or collaborated for more than 60 books. She was a political activist too and a co-founder of the Fabian Society, a socialist association later affiliated with the Labour Party. Nesbit was born in 1858 at 38 Lower Kennington Path, Kennington, Surrey. She was the girl of an agricultural chemist, John Collis Nesbit (who kicked the bucket in Walk 1862), and Sarah Green. The ill health of Edith's sister Mary forced the family to travel for some years, living differently in Brighton, Buckinghamshire, France, Spain, and Germany. After her sister's death, Edith and her mom settled for three years at Halstead Hall, Halstead, north-west Kent. When she was 17, her family moved back to Lewisham in south-east London. Nesbit married Hubert Bland on 22 April 1880, yet their marriage was turbulent. They both tarried with the Social Democratic Federation but found it too radical. She and her husband co-wrote under the pen name "Fabian Bland". Edith lived from 1899 to 1920 at Well Hall, Eltham, in southeast London."
