Barbara Wallace has been a life-long romantic and daydreamer so it's not surprising she decided to become a writer at age eight. However, it wasn't until a co-worker handed her a romance novel that she knew where her stories belonged. For years she limited her dreams to nights, weekends and commuter train trips while working as a communications specialist, PR freelancer and full-time mom.

Killing Millie Helper

With Apologies to the Late Great
Ann Morgan Guilbert

It started as a college joke.  My dormmate decided that if we were television characters, she would be Laura Petrie from the Dick Van Dyke Show, and I would be her gabby, busybody neighbor, Millie Helper. My roommate would be Sally, the man-hungry comedy writer.  The joke faded, but the nickname Millie stuck. 

As nicknames go, it’s not the end of
