Barbara Butler McCoy
Born and bred in the Midwestern US, Ohio to be precise, I have shaped my life around storytelling. When I realized that all those lessons about sentences and punctuation and paragraphs provided the building blocks of the stories I devoured, I was hooked. My degree in News-Editorial Journalism (Marquette University 1981) fueled my passion for story and guided me in sharpening my skills. Having moved about the country as my husband and I raised our family, nurturing that love of story through all those years, I am more than ready to focus fully on storytelling. With more than half a century of relationships, experiences, passions and interests in my 'toolbox,' I see interesting promises ahead.

Watermark in the Heart
by Barbara Butler McCoy
"Watermark in the Heart" is a slim volume of poetry marking Barbara Butler McCoy's debut. It offers hurricane season as a metaphor for the process by which human consciousness explores life and comes to an understanding of itself in the wake of those moments and events that shake and shatter the soul, and alter the personal, natural and universal landscape.
