About the Author

Susan Coolidge - pseudonym of Sarah Chauncy Woolsey (1845-1905) - was born in Cleveland, Ohio and spent much of her childhood in Connecticut. After serving as a nurse in the Civil War, she took up writing. By chance, her editor was also the editor for Louisa M. Alcott - famous for her Little Women mostrar mais books - and it is thought that he suggested Susan Coolidge try the same kind of story. Five books about Katy Carr and her family resulted. mostrar menos

Sarah Chaucey Woolsey was born into a wealth and influential New England family living in Cleveland. One of her uncles was Theodore Dwight Woolsey, president of Yale College. The author and poet Gamel Woolsey was her niece. Sarah spent much of her childhood in New Haven after the family moved there. She travelled to Europe in 1870–1872 and then settled with her family in Newport, Rhode Island. She never married. She served as a nurse during the U.S. Civil War and then began to publish her writing, using the pseudonym "Susan Coolidge." She's best remembered for the classic five-volume What Katy Did series, but Susan Coolidge also was a prolific writer of verses and short stories for children. In addition, she edited several works including The Autobiography and Correspondence of Mrs. Delaney (1879) and The Diary and Letters of Frances Burney (1880).
