"Author Frances Boyd Calhoun was born in Mecklenburg County, Virginia, in 1867, one of five children of a newspaper editor and publisher. In 1880 the family moved to Covington, Tennessee, where Frances Boyd attended Tipton Female Academy. She displayed her intelligence early by winning a scholarship awarded to the Tipton County female who graduated with the highest honors. After graduation, she taught school and wrote for her father's newspaper. In 1903 she married George Barret Calhoun, who died a year later. As a lingering illness made continuing to teach impossible, Calhoun, from her lawn chair swing, turned to writing and regaling friends (youths and adults, alike) with her remarkable skill for storytelling."
