Adair Sanders was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee in an era when girls of a certain social class were expected to marry well and never work. Exhibiting her penchant for being contrary, Adair left the confines of an all-girl education to pursue a psychology degree and a law degree from the University of Tennessee. For the next thirty years – give or take a few – Adair enjoyed disproving the agenda her parents had designed for her, becoming the first female member of a men’s dining club in Knoxville, Tennessee and then the first female partner in an old-line law firm in Jackson, Mississippi all the while, more or less successfully, balancing a home life of husband and children. Yes, honey, you can have it all.
After the death of her father in 2007, Adair felt called to write the story of her family’s generational dysfunction. Although still practicing law, Adair spent her evenings writing, and thus was birthed her first book, a memoir, aptly entitled Biologically Bankrupt. Three years later, having exited her firm in early retirement (an act which greatly peeved many of her male partners), Adair decided to take a dialogue writing class at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC. Low and behold, two days into the week-long class, Allison Parker, trial lawyer extraordinaire, made her appearance known to Adair, and the rest is history. As Sick As Our Secrets, An Allison Parker Mystery, was released at the end of 2014, inviting the reader to follow the spunky Alabama lawyer as she uncovers a delicious trail of sex, blackmail and murder. In What Comes Around, released in December of 2015, the Alabama lawyer joins forces with her favorite Private Investigator and an old friend in the F.B.I. in an attempt to catch a serial killer which has struck at the heart of Allison’s town.
Adair resides in Brevard, NC, where she is a founding member of the Brevard Authors Guild and the North Carolina Writer’s Org.
