Biographical / Historical

Marilyn Gould was born February 12, 1928, in Cleveland, OH, and became a teacher and writer. She began writing when, as a teacher, she found it easier to create her own teaching material. While growing up she had a friend who had cerebral palsy. Years later she was asked to write a television script about a child who had overcome a difficulty, and Gould had her friend in mind as she wrote it. The production eventually led to a reunion of Gould and her childhood friend.
