Alfred Woollacott, III

Bio: Alfred Woollacott, III retired from KPMG in 2002 after a career spanning 34 years, choosing to reside full time at his summer residence on Martha's Vineyard. Being "45 minutes from America" and with a 50 - 60 hour per week void to fill, he began dabbling into his family history. His dabbling grew to an obsession, and he published several genealogical summaries of his ancestors. But certain ones absorbed him, and he could not leave them. So he researched their lives and times further while evolving his writing skills from "just the facts ma'am" to a fascinating narrative style. Thus with imagination, anchored in fact and tempered with plausibility, a remote ancestor can achieve a robust life as envisioned by a writer with a few drops of his ancestor's blood in his veins. More than a historical novel, "The Immigrant" has many meaningful layers to savor and several historical puzzles to uncover.
