Author’s Biography

Sarah Kay Bierle has a B.A. in History from Thomas Edison State University and is exploring and enjoying her experiences as a historian, writer, speaker, and living history enthusiast. She manages her company’s events and publications (Gazette665) and is also a co-managing editor at Emerging Civil War.

“History, research, and writing are my passion,” she says. “I desire to make history more understandable and accessible to Americans who stumble through school thinking history is a collection of random dates, places, and events. Through thought-provoking writing, I want people to reconsider the past and find lessons which may inspire them to live more courageously today.”

Much of Sarah’s research focuses on real people and their trials and successes of everyday life in challenging eras, with a primary focus on the Civil War. Her interests include the war’s effects on maritime industry, the civilians’ struggles, surgeons and medical care, and officers and families of Virginia. She has also published three books, including an award-winning, well-researched historical novel about civilians at the Battle of Gettysburg.

When not researching and writing, Sarah enjoys spending time with her family and friends, reading classic literature, quilting, and traveling. She maintains a personal history blog at
