Barbara wrote her first novel "Cherokee the Wild Pinto" when she was eight years old and prepared the final manuscript on her Tom Thumb typewriter. She discovered the joy of performing when her sister dressed her up as a Pilgrim and had her sing "Over the River and Through the Woods" for Thanksgiving. After that, she was hooked on theatre, performing in shows ranging from "Guys and Dolls" to Greek tragedy.She abandoned a career in educational administration to pursue a life in the theatre, working as an actress in summer stock and dinner theatre and later, as a lyricist and librettist. She’s written everything from cantatas to choral pieces, one-hour musicals for children to full-length ones for adults.
