Barbara's love of writing developed out of a love of reading. Growing up in an all-boy neighborhood, she spent quite a bit of time reading through her mother's large library, many of which were romantic novels. After graduating from the University of California at Santa Barbara, she went into Public Relations, but soon discovered that writing was her true passion.

Barbara was traditionally published for many years, then formed her own publishing company FOG CITY PUBLISHING in 2011 and has since sold over 6 million books! She has published 52 novels ranging from contemporary romance to romantic suspense and women's fiction. Her book SUMMER SECRETS was a #1 New York Times bestseller!

They're a little shorter and sweeter in tone with no graphic sex scenes but lots of romance, fun and emotion! (less)

I was inspired by some of my experiences at college and while the story was pure fiction, some of the characters were based on friends from college days. And I'm very glad I kept you guessing on the suspense plot!

I hope you enjoy many more of my books to come!

Thanks for your note!
