Biographical/Historical Note

Wylly Folk St. John was an award-winning Georgia author of children's mystery fiction, and a resident of Social Circle, Georgia.

After graduating from the University of Georgia's Journalism School in 1930, St. John began writing novels, and short stories. Folk St. John also worked as a staff writer for the then Atlanta Journal Magazine. Her most acclaimed collection of writings, however, is made up of eight mystery novels for juvenile readers. She is also the author of many adult short stories that have been published as back-of-the-book novels in major magazines such as Redbook.

Wylly Folk St. John grew up in Savannah, Georgia, but spent the most recent years of her life in the small town of Social Circle, Georgia. Although many of St. John's interests were national in scope, she managed to spread her influence throughout Social Circle. She was an active member of many citizen and community councils while working on several civic committees to benefit her town.
