My name is Barbara. 

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

I am a single mother of 3 children-12, 9 and 3 year old.  I placed my middle child for adoption at birth, and she currently lives in California.

I have a degree in Cosmetology from trade school during highschool. I get 14 hours of continued education every 2 years to stay legally licensed.

I have been a writer since I was a kid, enthralled originally with poetry- think "Where the Sidewalk Ends", etc. But I have a  passion for the language arts in general. 

I studied journalism, english and creative writing at community college;

Mchenry County College, Illinois & Paradise Valley Community College, Arizona

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

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