My name is Barbara. 

I am an American citizen from the suburbs of Chicago, living in the Domincan Republic for eight years now.  

I am a single mother of 3 children-11, 8 and 18 months. My eight year old I placed for adoption at birth and she currently lives in California.

I have been a writer since I was a kid, enthralled originally with poetry, but a passion for the language arts in general. 

 It has become even more interesting since becoming fluent in Spanish, and even more so since accepting Jesus as my lord.

Life is a trip, and I'm here for the ride!
