Author Biography

Gail Campbell Woolley (1957-2015) grew up in Washington, D.C., and was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia at age seven. She studied journalism and international relations at Syracuse University and worked as a reporter for the Washington Star, the Baltimore Sun, and the Washington Times before beginning a career in corporate public relations. She died at age 58, exceeding the life expectancy her doctor predicted by more than 20 years. Nick Chiles has won more than a dozen major journalism awards, including a Pulitzer Prize as a newspaper reporter in New York City. He is the author or coauthor of 12 books, including two New York Times bestsellers, one cowritten with Rev. Al Sharpton and one with gospel superstar Kirk Franklin. He lives in Atlanta.
