About this author

Barbara Stewart (7/13/1959) was born in Havre de Grace, MD, and grew up in southeastern Pennsylvania, and the central east coast of Florida. She resides in Middleburg, FL with her husband Gene.

Barbara has worked in the electronics industry, and most recently in healthcare. She's a volunteer for the American Cancer Society, and won the Hope Award for volunteerism in 2009.

She writes love stories that usually evolve from music - a song she hears that paints a picture, and refers to her writing as 'the sound-track of her life.' Sprinkled through her stories are humor and sadness based on experiences shared with family and friends.

A reviewer on Amazon recently said, "This isn't a romance, it's a love story." (readingmaven)

"As a new writer. I hop

I was brushing my teeth and when I looked in the mirror I saw my mother's face looking back at me. I know it's because I'm getting older and everyone says I look more like her, but it give me the beginning of the idea for The Face in the Mirror.(less)

Excerpt from The Face in the Mirror – because it’s on my mind.


Thanksgiving morning was busy as we finished preparing the meal. After one last check before we put dinner on the table, I looked around the room at the people there waiting to share our Thanksgiving meal – Midge, Alecia, Dave and Ashley, as well as Cassie, and my sweet, wonderful husband – and I felt deliriously happy. We’d be shar...

3 is all I can do.

I'm a minority here. I hated Cathy so much that I can't go any higher. I'm giving 3 because the writer MADE me finish the book. I put it away at 46% because I kept hoping the STORY would give me hope. It didn't. There really wasn't

Gary Paulsen
“Why do I read?
I just can't help myself.
I read to learn and to grow, to laugh
and to be motivated.
I read to understand things I've never
been exposed to.
I read when I'm crabby, when I've just
said monumentally dumb things to the
people I love.
I read for strength to help me when I
feel broken, discouraged, and afraid.
I read when I'm angry at the whole
world.
I read when everything is going right.
I read to find hope.
I read because I'm made up not just of
skin and bones, of sights, feelings,
and a deep need for chocolate, but I'm
also made up of words.
Words describe my thoughts and what's
hidden in my heart.
Words are alive--when I've found a
story that I love, I read it again and
again, like playing a favorite song
over and over.
Reading isn't passive--I enter the
story with the characters, breathe
their air, feel their frustrations,
scream at them to stop when they're
about to do something stupid, cry with
them, laugh with them.
Reading for me, is spending time with a
friend.
A book is a friend.
You can never have too many.”
Gary Paulsen, Shelf Life: Stories by the Book

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“GIRL, write YOUR book dammit.
Who cares what people think?
If writers in the past cared what other people thought we'd still be glossing over 'inappropriate' kissing scenes.
Break the fucking rules.
Push yourself to the edge.
Show the world what YOU can do.
This is YOUR book. YOUR blood and guts.
AND, don't you EVER, EVER, write one single line for SOMEONE ELSE.”
Madeline Sheehan
