Gail Barrett always knew she’d be a writer. Who else would spend her childhood grinding glittery rocks into “fairy dust” and convincing her friends it was real? Or daydream her way through elementary school, spend high school reading philosophy and playing the bagpipes and then head off to Spain to live the writer’s life?
Four years later, broke but fluent in Spanish, she straggled back home and discovered she’d acquired a marketable skill. So she began teaching Spanish. She also met her husband, a Montana rancher turned Coast Guard officer, and began following him around the country as he rescued ships and saved lives. Finally, after having two sons, getting a master’s degree in linguistics and teaching high school Spanish for years, she decided that the time had come to write.
