Authors on the Air host Pam Stack is exceptionally happy to welcome one of the thriller genre's favorite authors, Sandra Brannan.  In her own words:  I am one of nine kids and grew up in the woods between three quarries.  Not quite like being raised by wolves as my parents are quite sophisticated and kind and good.  But I won't lie.  I wanted to be raised by wolves, envied Mowgli, even though I adore my siblings and parents. I am an engineer with an MBA who played college basketball and worked at McDonalds to put myself through school, then got a great job building 747's and 767's for Boeing.   Transferred with the B1B program back to my hometown of Rapid City, SD and decided to leave aeronautics and instead work with the family business.  In a limestone mine.What's my point to readers?  If I were you and heard that some engineer, miner, MBA, jock-type westerner was writing gritty suspenseful mysteries, I'd probably say 'PASS, NOT INTERESTED'.  But I have to say, I definitely understand what it takes to pull me out of my life and make me lose a night of sleep.  In a good way.  And the answer is a very well written storyline with characters I want to go drink a beer with, so I could find out more about him or her.  That's how I write.  I love my characters.  I love every day heroes who shine more than my protagonist (unfortunately for my editor, who I love).  I want to learn more about each one of them.  And they constantly surprise me with their choices, with what they do and who they meet.  I hope you enjoy them, too!   This is a copyrighted podcast of the  Authors on the Air Global Radio Network LLC.
