In 2015 Barbara retired from a career with horses to become a full-time writer. She lives in Missouri with twelve horses and her husband. Her two grown daughters and her teenage granddaughter live nearby.
Barbara has had a passion for writing since—forever, and she combines it with her love of horses to write inspirational romance about love, healing, hope and horses.
Long time blogger and author for TheRidingInstructor.net Barbara has spent a lifetime teaching riding and training horses on one hand, and writing curriculum for equestrian programs, articles for small horse publications, and newsletters on the other.
With one manuscript finished and three others through first draft, Barbara enjoys plenty of time at the computer. When she’s not writing you can usually find her with one of the retired Thoroughbreds, or more likely with her buddy Reno, a Mustang captured from the hills of Northern Nevada.
Barbara is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers, Romance Writers of America, United States Pony Clubs, and United States Dressage Federation.
