Born in Osaka, Japan, Branch travelled extensively growing up calling many places home. Finishing high school at Rolling Hills, California, he went on to graduate from Texas State University, San Marcos, did post-graduate work at the University of Houston and received his Oxford MA Theology degree from Trinity College & Seminary, Newburgh, Indiana.
Having started his corporate career like so many others Branch began to realise how corrupt and unfair the system was, and kick started his spiritual awakening and growth. Wife number 3 is now his perfect match with spirituality being a strong connection and grounder for them both.
Branch is author of twenty-two books in four genres.The power of personal responsibility, or its avoidance, is his writing focus. His self-discovery themes span a wide range of reflective identity situations and scenarios every adult recognizes. His stories explore concepts and actions of struggle and relationship dynamics across a broad spectrum. Branch writes of issues and emotions often experienced, but not always voiced.
Forty-two short story poems from Branch’s books have been reprinted by magazines, newspapers and e-zine publications. Branch has been a guest on ‘Talk Radio’ and Podcast programs nationwide and is available to speak with groups large or small.
Branch’s active Internet presence provides readers and followers with short story selections and empowering ‘Thoughts’ posted on this web site and on YouTube (Branch Isole).
