About the author (1986)

The author of more than fifteen books, Joyce Blackburn started as professional radio broadcaster in Chicago. A radio play she wrote and performed called "Suki and the Invisible Peacock" led a contract for a book of the same name, which, in turn, led to the popular Suki series. Subsequent prize-winning titles for young readers have made Blackburn well known to librarians and teachers. Her popular historical biographies have earned her an enthusiastic adult following. Blackburn, a resident of St. Simons Island, Georgia, received the 1996 Governor's Award in the humanities from the Georgia Humanities Council, and in the same year, the Suki books were reissued in a Silver Anniversary Edition. Among other awards she has received are the 1971 Fiction Author of the Year, Dixie Council of Authors and Journalists; 1971 National Christian School C. S. Lewis Award for "Suki and the Wonder Star; " and 1970 Literary Achievement Award for Non-Fiction, Georgia Writers Association. Her works are in the special Collections of the Woodruff Library at Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia.
