Branka has loved to write since she was a kid. Having been told that creative writing wasn't a viable career, she chose to pursue an academic career instead. There was a story brewing within her, however, and she left academia to write her first novel. Since then she independently published two novels, The Lady of the Sea and Dragon's Love, and is now working on the third one. She loves to walk in the forest barefoot, swim in the sea naked, and she can't imagine her life without a boat. She lives in Croatia with her husband, son, and two dogs.
