Writing and storytelling came along in elementary school, including rewriting song lyrics. Often, I would rewrite them to God, and my favorite to sing was “You Are the Sunshine of My Life.” I told elaborate tales to my Barbie and Dawn dolls, stuffed animals and imaginary friends. Around my middle and early high school days I was writing poetry and really terrible rock and roll lyrics. No, it’s true, they were horrible! I credit a high school English teacher for getting my head out of emo songs and into creative writing and fiction, and an art teacher who kept my creativity flowing in other areas.

Description: Book Three in the Lakeville Series Two Brothers, two paths. “I know what’s going on. What are you going to do to make it right?” Jude barked out a laugh...he was prepared for every argument. His stance declared he would have none of what Silas had to say. “Who says we’re not right?” Praying for the right words to be spoken and a fertile heart to hear them, Silas reached for his brother, plunging into the discussion he knew they needed to have. “Jude, you know the right thing. I don’t need to spout off a list of Scripture. What can I do?” “Mind your business." Jude shook off the hand on his arm. "That’s the first thing. No, that’s the ONLY thing.” “My brother walking in sin isn’t my business?” “We’re not kids anymore; you can stop looking out for me, it’s getting old. So, mind your business and go home. I don’t need Jiminy Cricket hanging around the door...” “Jiminy Cricket? How about the Holy Ghost? Don’t be a fool, Jude. You’re not hiding anything from Jesus.” “You’re boring me, Si. I pray every night and I haven’t missed church. All is well on that front. Now, go away.” Silas adopted a stubborn set to his face. The fabric of their relationship, worn to tatters from recent strains, tore apart. The impasse reached could destroy their close bond.

“Rob fleetingly thought how comical it would be to introduce her to Sunnie instead of Sammie. Then he prayed to be nice for the rest of his visit. It was taxing to be a well-behaved big brother at times.”
D.H. Barbara, Seasons of a Life

“Where'd you see her at? ~
Officer Tony Penziotti, Sunnie's Rainbow”
D.H. Barbara

“She despised weakness, especially her own. She'd seared most of her
emotional needs with the white-hit iron of self-reliance and
independence years before.
~Angels Unaware”
