My guest today first started conjuring stories of pirates when her family hopped a freighter to Australia when she was seven. She has since grown up, traveling the globe, raising a family, and working as a receptionist, retail clerk, writing tutor, and certified nurse midwife. She also taught science and history to middle school and high school students in the U.S., Brazil and Japan. Through these myriad experiences, she has developed a deep appreciation for people’s strength and endurance and believes that badass women will inherit the earth. She is still weaving pirate tales in her head and now, on paper, phone and computer, for readers’ enjoyment. Welcome to Authors Over 50, Sarah Branson.
