Jules Verne (1828-1905), was a French author who was born in Nantes. He was educated at Saint Donatien College where he may have been a student of Brutus de Villeroi (inventor and pioneer of the first submarines). While history supports no formal records of Jules Verne studing under Brutus de Villeroi, it is widely believed that Villeroi may have inspired the novel Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea by Jules Verne. Following his years at Saint Donatien College, he studied law in Paris. After failing to complete his law degree, he focused on writing, and worked as a stockbroker. Along with Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea, Jules Verne wrote many other science fiction novels including the famous A Journey to the Center of the Earth, Around the World in Eighty Days, and From the Earth to the Moon. It was his imagination, and ability to foresee the advancement of science and technology that enabled him to usher science fiction into a new era. Jules Verne not only predicted many future scientific inventions, but he strongly influenced the writing of many future science fiction writers including H. G. Wells, and Rider Haggard. Over the course of his writing career Jules Verne wrote many novels and short stories with varied levels of success. His later writing began to take on a depressed feeling as seen in The Lighthouse at the End of the World, and Invasion of the Sea.
