My guest today is a wandering adventurer who left decades of grown-up life on the East Coast at age sixty to return to the mountains, beaches, and rain of her soul’s home in the Pacific Northwest. She blogs about her adventures from coffee shops, her father’s desk, national park lodges, her tent—wherever she feels cozy. She writes to learn about who she is in the world and within herself and shares it with readers who may find themselves in places they never expected to be. She lives with her cat in Washington, the real one. Welcome to Authors Over 50, Gretchen Staebler.
