  Susan Coolidge(蘇珊‧庫里居) was the pen name of Sarah Chauncey Woosley, an American author born in the USA on 29th January 1835 to wealthy parents. Sarah had a very happy childhood. She grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, in a situation very like Katy Carr’s in the story. Sarah had three sisters and a brother, and their adventures gave her the ideas for her stories about the Carr children. Sarah went to a private school and then to a boarding school where her teachers encouraged her to write.

  After her father died in 1870 Sarah travelled through Europe with her family. Then in 1872 she worked as a nurse during the American Civil War. After this she began writing and published What Katy Did in 1872, then What Katy Did at School one year later. 
  Susan never married or had children, but was very close to her brothers and sisters. She died in April 1905.
