Blair Northen Williamson is from Richmond, Virginia but spent much of her childhood off the coast of Wilmington, North Carolina where she developed a passion for life at sea. Her love of nature, the ocean, and relating to others led her to work for Global Expeditions Group for over a decade. She has lived and traveled all over the world, following her desire to explore, meet new people, and immerse herself in new cultures.
Blair is married and is a dedicated mother to two daughters. She is a Collegiate Hall of Fame athlete, sailing IYT 200-ton captain, and PADI master scuba diver trainer. An incredible imagination and love of teaching has enabled Blair to realize her dream of writing stories for children which have been inspired by many vast, exciting global adventures.
“We regularly visit Barnes and Noble and have a Literati subscription, so we read through a ton of books to select the ones worthy of the at-home library. I look for books that 1) teach important lessons or have strong value statements, and 2) be ones we want to re-read regularly. Blair Williamson’s books check those boxes. I could easily see being at the store and the kids picking her books out and moms approving them. Williamson’s books make it so easy for the kids to grasp the moral of the story and for the family discussion to follow. They are fun to read and pack a punch with their important, easily-grasped lessons.
— Bliss Lansing, mom of 7 and 4-year-olds
