P L Travers, born as Helen Lyndon Goff, was a mysterious and prickly Australian born British novelist, actress and journalist. She immigrated to England and spent almost her entire life there. She had great interest in mysticism, mythology and fantasy. She is best known for her ‘Mary Poppins’ series of children’s book. For a short stint, she worked for British Ministry of Information. Walt Disney had obtained the rights of her first book and adapted it to a hit film. The contract with Disney studio made her very wealthy. However, being a very whimsical and prickly person she never gave film rights of her books to Disney. The last years of her life she had become even more reclusive. When she died at the age of 96, she was alone. For services to literature Queen Elizabeth honored her with ‘Officer of the Order of the British Empire’ in 1977.
