Barbara Hinske is an attorney who recently left the practice of law to pursue her career as a full-time novelist. She inherited the fiction gene from her father who wrote mysteries when he retired and told her a story every night of her childhood. Barbara is the bestselling author of the beloved ‘Rosemont’ series and has recently launched a collection of murder mystery thrillers in her "Who's There?" collection.

She and her husband share their own Rosemont with two adorable and spoiled dogs. She is besotted with decorating, entertaining, cooking and gardening. Now that her novel The Christmas Club has been made into a Hallmark Channel movie, she is completely star-struck and thrilled to have her work on the screen.

“You’ll make mistakes, as we all do, and if you’re smart, you’ll take the lesson from those mistakes without letting them derail you. I have three principles that have proved very helpful in my own life: set your bar high—make sure that your goals are worthy of your efforts; be true to your personal values and guard your integrity; and as my grandmother used to say, ‘Don’t borrow trouble or horribilize over problems that haven’t happened yet.’ Let me elaborate …” Maggie”

Helen I really loved "coming to Rosemont". I am waiting for the next book so I can continue the saga. Please hurry. Thanks for writing a book that has a woman character that thinks like a woman.
