In college, Barbara’s dream was to be a writer, but life took a different turn. After a stint as an insurance health claims adjuster, she finished her first degree, then took a job in newspapers. She worked mostly at a small daily so her two sons could attend a small town school. She enjoyed being a reporter and, later, an editor. Even after she became a teacher, her summers were spent at area newspapers or magazines. It wasn’t until after her husband died unexpectedly that she decided to try her hand at fiction. She gave up teaching journalism and English full time to work part time at a local community college as an English instructor, giving her time to write.
So, welcome Barbara to Historical Romance Review!
|Lady of the Forest|
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.”
