For August and September, Sailor’s Box Book of the Month presents our subscribers the first book from sailor and author Sam Lyatt! Higgins: The Pacificator will be featured in all Sailor’s Box orders throughout August and September as our Sailor’s Book Club Book of the Month.
Sam Lyatt grew up in a small town in New Jersey as the youngest of three. Torn between science and writing, she hoped to one day combine her affinity of each. Sam pursued engineering in college, while participating in fencing and competitively sailing as Commodore of the yacht club.
While earning a Master’s degree in Ocean Engineering, Sam continued to read and write in her spare time, as well as refurbish old sailboats, canoes, and fishing boats. She went through several part-time jobs, from naval research technician to dockhand, while enjoying time fishing on the weekends.
Sam now works as an engineer in the flood risk management industry, aiding in the protection of coastal and riverine communities. Separately, she is writing nautical fantasy fiction, implementing descriptions gained through life experience. Sam hopes to inspire her readers through adventures of the seas, while depicting the wonders of the oceans, sailing, and mythology.
