You might also see if you could get hold of her journals - they've
been published in several volumes, afaik. I have the first one _The
Selected Journals of L.M.Montgomery_ ed. Mary Rubio and Elizabeth
Waterson. She did write a *lot*. I've only skimmed this one, and
couldn't face up to the later ones. Not sure whether I got the
biographical info off the web site or not, but probably. She wrote
gobs of poetry, but I don't remember how available it all is.
I - ahem - also bought the cookbook _Aunt Maud's Recipe Book_ which
has lovely photos and family anecdotes. My favourite picture of her
(again, not sure where I got this) was of her as a busy minister's
wife (teaching Sunday school, cooking for teas etc.) and writer - she
was regularly seen dashing around with her shopping basket and
muttering bits of dialogue so she wouldn't forget them.
