Meet the Author

A nationally known, award-winning author of narrative nonfiction, Amy Waters Yarsinske received her master of planning degree from the University of Virginia School of Architecture and her bachelor of arts degrees in English and economics from Randolph-Macon Woman's College. She is a former president of the Norfolk Historical Society, cofounder of the Norfolk Historical Foundation and a graduate of CIVIC Leadership Institute. Yarsinske has over two decades of experience in the publishing industry as an author and editor and has made repeated appearances as a guest and commentator for major media, including American and foreign networks and international, national and regional radio markets. She is a member of Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE), Authors Guild and American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA). She is the author of fifty-five books of nonfiction, including the widely read, award-winning No One Left Behind: The Lt. Comdr. Michael Scott Speicher Story (Dutton/NAL, 2002 and 2003; Listen and Live Audio, 2002, 2004 and 2006; Topics Entertainment, 2004; Listen and Live MP3, 2007; and Playaway Digital Audio Player, 2009).
Many years ago, Yarsinske made a commitment to tell the story of the Old Dominion one book at a time, and most especially "America's First Region," which includes the cities and counties of Hampton Roads and northeastern North Carolina. The author is a Hampton Roads native whose maternal grandfather's family history can be traced to the very beginning of what is today the city of Virginia Beach, to the first men and women of the Lynnhaven Parish, Lower Norfolk County, and to the later establishment of Princess Anne County and the first resort that sprung up on Virginia's golden shore.
