Peggy Dymond Leavey's ten previous books include Sky Lake Summer, The Deep End Gang, and The Path Through the Trees, all of which have been nominated for the Silver Birch Award. She has also been shortlisted for the Manitoba Young Readers' Choice award, the Arthur Ellis Award, and the Canadian Library Association Book of the Year for Children Award. Her most recent book, Growing Up Ivy, was published by Dundurn in 2010.
A retired librarian, Peggy has published stories and articles in newspapers and magazines and was contributing editor on three books of local history. Her interest in the pioneers of early motion pictures began with her research into the movie industry of her hometown, Trenton, Ontario -- Canada's filmmaking capital from 1917-1934. Writing the life of Mary Pickford was a natural progression.
