My guest today is a first mother and a late discovery step-adoptee. She grew up in rural Central Minnesota with no running water or electricity, and by the time she graduated from high school, she’d learned books were an oasis and her guitar a good friend. After earning a Social Work degree, she embarked on a year-long bicycle trip across North America before settling in Alaska. An artist at heart, she is a self-taught silversmith, singer/songwriter and plays the guitar, banjo, bass, and saxophone. She resides with her husband in Denali, Alaska, and works as a Park Ranger during the summer months. Welcome to Authors Over 50, Candace Cahill.
