About Sara Lindsay Coleman

In 1907, O. Henry married his childhood sweetheart. She was an aspiring writer, and O. Henry helped her get in contact with New York publishers.

They lived together in Long Island for a year, but O. Henry had to be in the midst of NYC action in order to write. He moved back to New York to continue his writing career, while Sara moved to Asheville, N.C., her hometown.

In 1916, Sara wrote a novel called Winds of Destiny, based on the letters she had received from O. Henry.
