- Author BiographyRobert Louis Stevenson was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1850. The son of an engineer, Stevenson followed in his father's footsteps by studying engineering and law at the University of Edinburgh. However, his passion for writing soon became more than a hobby and he decided to pursue it on a full-time basis. This career choice initially upset his father, but Stevenson made a promise to complete his studies, and was admitted to the Scottish bar in 1875. Stevenson's most famous work is the classic pirate tale <i>Treasure Island</i>, which was published in 1883. A fast-paced story of adventure, with mass appeal, it soon became popular across the world. Stevenson later created an infamous, but very intriguing, character in <i>The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde</i>, published in 1886. In 1887, Stevenson headed for America with his wife, stepson and mother. He had become famous in New York, and received many attractive offers from various publishers. It was soon after this move that he took up his pen for <i>The Master of Ballantrae</i>, a novel which is considered one of his best works. Stevenson died at the age of forty-four on 3rd December, 1894. While best known for writing tales of action and adventure, Robert Louis Stevenson is also remembered as an accomplished poet and essayist.
