Called Barb as often as Barbara, Mrs. Kiger was born in Michigan but moved south with her husband and most of their six children in 1979. A nurse by profession, she began writing seriously after losing her sight in 1985. Her work has appeared in magazines and anthologies, the most recent being William B. Toulouse's "Amazingly Simple Lessons Learned After Fifty." "Beginnings," a short story, received Honorable Mention in the Tallahassee Writers' Association 2002 Seven Hills Contest, and appeared in that year's Fiction Review. "Payback" is her first published novel.
Payback is a game, a deadly game. One in which Ginny Arthur, owner and operator of a security agency, becomes an unwilling participant. Pitted against thieves, drug pushers, and murderers, it is a game Ginny has to win.
