Phyllis Reynolds Naylor's first work was published in a church magazine when she was 16 years old. She paid her way through college, where she majored in clinical psychology, by writing and selling stories. Naylor found that she enjoyed writing so much that she abandoned her plans to attend graduate school. WHAT THE GULLS WERE SINGING, her first published work for children, appeared in 1967. Her 1991 work, SHILOH, was awarded the Newbery Medal.
"As unlikely as the plot sounds, the believability of the characters and the complexity of their emotions give the novel psychological truth and strong resonance to its protagonists' slow movement toward forgiveness."
