Barbara grew up with two brothers and two sisters, and none of them were born in the same place. Moving around so frequently, she learned early on how to entertain herself with stories. As an adult, she has lived on a commune in the Appalachians, taught on a reservation, and traveled from coast to coast and to Europe. When her own children came along, Ms. Longley decided to try something new—staying put.

Ms. Longley holds a Masters in Education, and taught elementary education for many years. By night, she likes to explore things mythical, metaphysical, and anything newsworthy. Much of what she learns makes its way into her stories, where all things are possible.

I didn't get to listen to or choose any of the narrators for my traditionally published books. Self-published authors can do that. When it comes to Tangled in Time, I listened to the book after the audible version, and I liked the narrator. We all... See Full Answer

“Don’t walk in front of me… I may not follow
Don’t walk behind me… I may not lead
Walk beside me… just be my friend”
Albert Camus

“Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering.”
Nicole Krauss, The History of Love

“Not one of your pertinent ancestors was squashed, devoured, drowned, starved, stranded, stuck fast, untimely wounded, or otherwise deflected from its life's quest of delivering a tiny charge of genetic material to the right partner at the right moment in order to perpetuate the only possible sequence of hereditary combinations that could result -- eventually, astoundingly, and all too briefly -- in you.”
Bill Bryson, A Short History of Nearly Everything

“Stories can conquer fear, you know. They can make the heart bigger.”
Ben Okri
