About Barbara Powell

I grew up all over the place. My father followed mining and construction. Many of the places where we lived no longer exist, at least as physical structures. Sulphur and Trego are names on a map. Only a few boards and rusted cans mark where the towns once stood. The tapestry of relationships these towns once held are gone. All that remains are memories and stories.

I live in Winnemucca Nevada in a house my grandfather built surrounded by trees and shrubs. Wild birds and critters are welcome, as well as a changing number of rescue dogs. I love visiting and listening to people, always have. A favorite occupation in small town Nevada! Now I'm using the most compelling of these stories in my novels. Not all of them are set in Nevada, but all of them are based on generations of stories told and retold.

You can read some of these stories, in short form, at nevadadsdesertlegends.com

A well written and wonderful story which puts you right in the middle of a great compisition.This story tells well how it would have been living in a desolate area and a town with no justice. Go and read for yourself!

This is a great read. It puts you in the middle of the interaction of the players and has you asking questions of your own about them. When you reach the final word you are really hoping that the author, Barbara C. Powell, will write more about them.
