Meet the Author

Joy Wallace Dickinson grew up in Orlando, Florida, in the 1950s. As a child, she spent many Saturdays visiting the Albertson Public Library and the book department of Ivey's department store, where she spent her allowance buying Nancy Drew mysteries. After school days in Orlando at Howard Junior High and William R. Boone, Ms. Dickinson graduated from the Florida State University in Tallahassee with a degree in English and history and edited books about history at the Institute of Early American History and Culture in Williamsburg, Virginia, and Stanford University Press. In the twenty-first century, she has written hundreds of "Florida Flashback" features about Central Florida history for the Orlando Sentinel, one of Florida's leading newspapers.
