Sally Cabot Gunning lives with her husband in Brewster on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. A graduate of the University of Rhode Island and a lifelong resident of New England, she is president of the local historical society and creates tours that showcase the three-hundred-year history of her village. She is a fellow at Massachusetts Historical Society. Gunning came to fiction writing at a young age, driven to it in desperation one rainy day when she ran out of books. She later authored a popular mystery series set on Cape Cod, but when she began to weave the Cape’s rich history into her stories she found herself hooked; she turned her focus to digging out the back story to the history that we thought we knew but didn’t and giving it a human face. This resulted in five critically acclaimed historical novels: The Widow’s War, Bound, The Rebellion of Jane Clarke, Benjamin Franklin’s Bastard, and her latest, MONTICELLO: A Daughter and Her Father.
