I'm Barbara, I read. I write. I come from the northeast, born in Havre de Grace, MD, and grew up in Pennsylvania. In my teens we moved to the Space Coast area of Florida. Now I live in Middleburg, Florida (Jacksonville area) with my husband, Gene.

I've worked in the electronics industry, and most recently in healthcare. I give back by volunteering whenever I can, and in 2009, I received The American Cancer Society's HOPE Award for volunteerism.

The stories I write come from my heart. I'm never sure where they are going until I get there. Most often, a song begins to paint a picture that becomes a love story. Sprinkled through my stories are humor and sadness based on real life experiences shared with family and friends. I write with emotion

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)

Prologue


 


Sometimes it’s about looking back and remembering. Sometimes it’s about looking forward, thinking about, and planning the future. And sometimes…well, it’s just about laughing at both of those things.


 


Today I am laughing over sad times because I’m finally finding the humor and love that surrounded each moment that brought me to the place I am right now. Nothing that happened in our live...

"Not Sure

I'm not sure what to say. It was hard for me to relate to Chellie. I have never been in her position or even close to it. I got bored with the book. This is nothing against Barbara or any of her other books. I've been very hesitant to writ..." Read more of this review »

“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
