Biographical Sketch

Priscilla Jaquith nee Hicks was born August 1, 1908, in Brooklyn, New York. She has worked as a newspaper reporter, editor, free-lance writer, and volunteer library assistant. She became interested in writing children's books when her own grandchildren began to read. She says that writing for children is the most exacting kind of writing she has done, because not only does the writing have to interest children, but it must interest adults too.
