Dare Wright
 
 
Dare Wright (1915-2001) American author and illustrator of children's books.
 
Dare Wright was a photographer, actress, and model. She grew up in Ohio and she learned to sketch, paint, write and sew. She combined her writing talent with photography to become a children's book author. Her first book The Lonely Doll brought her recognition as an author and photographer. She photographed her childhood Lenci Doll with two teddy bears to illustrate the children's books she was writing. She eventually wrote nineteen books in all. She left two unpublished works Make Me Real and Ocracoke in the Fiftie. They were edited from manuscripts left by Dare and the last was published in 2007.
