Biography

Jules G. Verne was born in Nantes, the former capital of Brittany, France. Verne went to Paris to study law but began writing stories and working in theatre as well.  When Verne's father discovered that his son was writing rather than studying law, he promptly withdrew his financial support. He then worked as a stockbroker.
 His wife encouraged him to pursue his writing, and he became acquainted withPierre - Jules Hetzel, an important French publisher. Hetzel helped improve Verne's writings, which until then had been repeatedly rejected by other publishers.  He died a wealthy man in 1905.
