Wersler was born in Beaufort and as a writer has a deep interest in the life and history of Beaufort.

Sandra Fischer’s book, Seasons in the Garden, is a compilation of inspirations she wrotebooks-seasons-in-the-garden over a 13-year period for newsletters of the Dataw Island Garden Club. Her observations reflect how the seasons of life in both nature and humans possess many parallels. Through prose and poetry, scripture verses and illustrations, the reader can journey through Seasons and contemplate the likenesses found within nature and humanity. Fischer is a “transplant” from Indiana who has lived in Beaufort since 2001 and has been published in several anthologies. Both books are also available at the Beaufort Bookstore.
