P.L. Travers was born in 1899 in Maryborough in Queensland, Australia and was one of three sisters. She worked as a secretary, a dancer and an actress, butwriting was P.L.Travers’s real love, and for many years she was a journalist. Itwas while recuperating from a serious illness that she wrote Mary Poppins “to while away the days, but also to put down something that had been in mymind for a long time”, she said.
