Meet Barbara

Barbara's writing took a turn in October, 2010 when she published "The Reindeer Keeper", an unforgettable Christmas story of family. In 2012 it was chosen by both Yahoo's Christmas Book Club Group and Yonkers Riverfront Library Book Club as their December Book of the Month. With readers captivated, the storyline continued with “The Snowman Maker” in 2013 and “The Candle Giver” in 2015. Barbara's next works include Amish fictions "A Robin's Snow" and "The Tin Cookie Cutter". Her most recent heartwarming Christmas story, "Velvet Snowflakes", was released in 2022.

From The Reader's Mouth

"The Snowman Maker reminded me of a great Hallmark movie. I really loved this book. This story is about family, forgiveness, hope and healing, helping others, never giving up, and realizing the importance of family. This was an inspiring story!"
