My guest today is a San Antonio-based writer, award-winning child advocate, and retired U.S. Army Major. As a former foster care youth and abuse survivor, she chronicled her journey from childhood trauma to child advocacy in her memoir, Misplaced Childhood: A True Story of Resiliency and Child Advocacy. She donates author profits or royalties to her local Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) program because she is passionate about their mission of serving abused and neglected children in foster care.

She has received many awards for her volunteer efforts for education and advocacy, most notably with CASA. She is also a “DIY” enthusiast and creates custom-painted themed furniture for children leaving foster care and entering their forever families. Welcome to Authors Over 50, Joan Ulsher.
