Maine author Margo Alley is a native of Biddeford Pool. Her deep ancestral roots and love for this tiny seacoast village on the rocky coast of Maine draw her to document its rich history for the benefit of generations present and future. Her first book, Biddeford Pool: A Founding History, was published in 2006. It is the only known book exclusively covering the founding history of Biddeford Pool, first named Winter Harbor, beginning with the early explorers and first settlements.

Margo, considered Biddeford Pool's preeminent historian, is a former President of the Biddeford Historical Society and one of the original founding members of the Biddeford Pool Coastal Historical Society. She is a keynote speaker on the area's monuments and tablets. Her literary works are stored in the Maine Woman's Writers Collection, the Biddeford Historical Society in Biddeford, Maine, and the Maine Historical Society, Portland, Maine.
