Wiki: Louisa May Alcott Wiki

After considering several careers, including acting, she discovered her true talent and earning power in writing. Although she aspired to writing serious novels, she soon learned that the demand -- and the money -- lay in the dramatic novels for children, for which she is well known.

The monetary aspects of a career were important to her chiefly because her father's penury thrust a significant responsibility on her to support the family.  -30-
