A.A. Milne

A.A. Milne is best known for his Winnie-the-Pooh children's books. Although it made him a lot of money he always wanted to be a serious writer but his adult novels and plays were ignored by the public and the critics.

His other claim to fame was that he owned Cotchford Farm in Hartfield. This was the place where Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones died.

Milne was also an officer in the First World War. An event he writes about in It's Too Late Now: The Autobiography of a Writer (1939).
