Sara Whitford

Biography

Sara Whitford's third-great-grandfather wrote their family lineage in a tattered, old copy of Robinson Crusoe. Adventure, literature, and history are in her blood.

Ever since she can remember, Whitford has been fascinated by the intriguing past of the coastal North Carolina region that has been home to her family for centuries. How could she not be, with stories of intrepid explorers, Indian kings, and ordinary Bath town boys-turned-pirates-like that notorious sea rogue known as Blackbeard? In her Adam Fletcher Adventure Series, Whitford weaves together colonial-era tales that incorporate true life (but often little known) historical facts with stories and characters inspired by her own decades of research.

Whitford writes novels between homeschooling her teenage son and tinkering with her various history-themed websites.
