Barbara has always been a dreamer and avid reader, so it is not surprising that she has put pen to paper. Barbara grew up on family cattle stations and became an amazing horse woman, commencing her horse training career at 12 years old. She progressed to racing horses for country race meetings, winning a trainer trophy, and rode in one of the first ‘ladies’ jockey races.
After moving to Atherton, FNQ, she continued to ride track work, assisted in coaching junior soccer for many years. Barbara and her mother ran a souvenir shop for a couple of years before Barbara bought a late-night pizza shop, after trouble with vandalism with drunkard people and pub late trading suspended the shop failed.
Barbara took a deep breath and as her children had finished school, she headed off on an adventure through western Queensland and Northern Territory, ending up in Orange New South Wales, working in a refrigeration factory. She quickly progressed from a worker on the track, to final inspection. She assisted in the development of a manual for the tracks.
While there, she went back to education in the hospitality industry, this led her to be a bar manager at a mine site. From here, she went into Pest Control for 14 years before retiring and putting pen to paper.
Barbara has two sons and three grandchildren.
