Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was an English author who was born in Bombay India. He attended the United Services College in North Devon. Early in his career Rudyard Kipling served on the editorial staff at the Military Gazette in Lahore India. It was during this time that he began writing short stories and publishing them in the Military Gazette. Many of these short stories are also included in his second book Plain Tales From the Hills which was published in 1887. His first book was published a year earlier a satire titled Department Ditties. The first true success Rudyard Kipling experienced as an author was from a series of stories published in 1888 and 1889. These stories are mainly about life in India and include Phantom Rickshaw, Wee Willie Winkie, Soldiers Three, In Black and White, The Story of the Gadsbys, and Under the Deodars. Following his success with these stories, he traveled to many destinations before finally taking residence in England. During these travels he met and married an American woman. Throughout his travels, and after settling in England, Rudyard Kipling wrote many short stories. One notable book written during this period, and perhaps his most famous book is The Jungle Book published in 1894. In 1907 he became the first English author to receive the Nobel Prize for literature.
