The award winning authors Martin Brossman and Anora McGaha have roots in the Washington DC area.
Brossman was born and raised in Washington DC, son of a research analyst for the labor department and science advisor for the Environmental Protection Agency. He grew up in the city until he was 18 and had a rich exposure to both social and political diversity. His mother still resides there. There for Watergate, Civil Rights Movement, Martin Luther King, Vietnam Protests and the Space Program, this upbringing gave him the ability to see things from multiple political and cultural perspectives.
McGaha is a US diplomat's daughter, whose family had a home base in the DC area to be close to the US Department of State in downtown Washington. McGaha's mother just retired from a career with the Department of State and lives in Bethesda, Maryland. McGaha lived in the DC area for over 7 years.
