Search - List of Books by James Lincoln Collier

James Lincoln Collier (born June 27, 1928) is a journalist, author, and professional musician.

Collier was born to Edmund Collier and Katherine Brown. He came from a family of writers and teachers, including his father and several aunts and uncles. He graduated from Hamilton College in 1950. A journalist with thirty years of experience, Collier worked with his brother, Christopher Collier, to create works of historical fiction designed to be fun and educational for children. Christopher Collier was a history professor and gave James historical information so that he could write the stories. Their historical novel Jump Ship to Freedom has been frequently challenged and removed from libraries because of the use of the word "nigger" by characters in the book.

Collier's notable literary works include My Brother Sam Is Dead, a Newbery Honor book that was also named a Notable Children's Book by the American Library Association and nominated for a National Book Award in 1975. He also wrote a children's book titled "the empty mirror" and The Teddy Bear Habit, about an insecure boy whose beatnik guitar teacher turns out to be a crook and Rich and Famous, sequel to The Teddy Bear Habit. His list of children's books also includes Chipper, about a young boy in a gang. His writings for adults include numerous books on jazz, including biographies of Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman and Duke Ellington. He has also contributed entries on jazz-related subjects to the Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians.

In addition to his writing, Collier is an accomplished jazz musician who plays trombone professionally.
