Biographical Sketch
Sue Lynn Alexander was born on August 20, 1933 in Tucson, Arizona, but grew up in Chicago, Illinois. At age eight, she began telling stories to her classmates during recess, and by twelve she knew she wanted to become a writer. She attended Drake University in Iowa from 1950-1952, and Northwestern University from 1952-1953.

Ms. Alexander realized her dream and began writing for children in 1969. Her first book was published by Scholastic Inc., in 1973. The recipient of numerous awards for her work over the years, she was the author of over twenty children's books by the end of her career. In addition to books, she contributed short stories to Weekly Reader and Jack and Jill, and was a founding member of the Los Angeles-based Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). From 1998 to 2007, she was also a contributor to the Los Angeles Times via the Kids' Reading Room Page.

Ms. Alexander passed away on July 3, 2008 at her home in West Hills, California (a suburb of Los Angeles). She was married to Joel Alexander, and they had three children. For more information, her website can be found at: www.sue-alexander.com .

Scope and Content
The collection contains typescripts, correspondence, galleys, and reviews for two titles. The materials are arranged alphabetically by title. Within each title the materials are arranged in the probable order in which they were created. The correspondence was separated by title.

Marc imagines himself as a world-renowned magician, even before he has learned his first trick in Marc the Magnificent (1978). There are typescripts, correspondence, a press sheet, and reviews for this title. The other book in the collection is Peacocks Are Very Special. The inspiration for the book came when Ms. Alexander was looking through a cookbook and saw the recipe for minestrone. After seeing the effort it would take to make the soup, she decided to write a story about it instead. In the story, Peacock gets caught in a snare and outwits Jackal by giving him the recipe for minestrone. The book was supposed to be published in the fall of 1975, but because Victoria Chess, the illustrator, was living in Lebanon, there were delays with the illustrations and it was published a year later. There are typescripts, correspondence, a galley, and reviews for this title.
