Short biography
Alice Walworth Graham was born in Natchez, Mississippi. Her grandfather served in the Confederate army and later became editor of The Natchez Democrat. Alice graduated from Natchez High School and St. Joseph’s Convent before enrolling in Mississippi State College for Women. There she wrote for the school newspaper, The Spectator.

Her first published book was Lost River (1938), an historical romance set on a Natchez plantation, which was the formula for her subsequent novels The Natchez Woman (1950), Romantic Lady (1952), Indigo Bend (1954) and Cibola (1962). She also wrote three historical novels set in England: Vows of the Peacock (1955), Shield of Honor (1957), and The Summer Queen (1973).
