Author of the bestselling Assignment: Romance series, Barbara is a corporate minion, over-scheduled parent, and connoisseur of fine chocolate. A second-generation journalist, her work has appeared in the Chicago Tribune and its affiliates as well as the lifestyle sites, Mom.Me and BlogHer.

After Gemma Halliday picked up her first manuscript, False Start, Publisher’s Weekly dubbed Barbara an “Indie Star” when they granted the romantic comedy a coveted starred review.

A member of Romance Writers of America, she looks forward to seeing her name on the New York Times bestseller list…at which point she will finally accept Godiva’s dogged requests to be a taste-tester.
