Barbara Eppich Struna

Biography

When the author and her husband Tim, a professional artist, turned forty in the late 1980s, they moved from Ohio with their family to an 1880 house in Brewster on Cape Cod. The Cape's history, culture, and brilliant natural light drew them in; this was a place where Tim could paint and Barbara would write. A storyteller at heart, Barbara's imagination took flight after she unearthed a mysterious pattern of red bricks under ten inches of soil behind her barn. She conjured up a connection to the Bellamy/Hallett legend, and her first novel was born. She is currently a Member in Letters of the National League of American Pen Women, The Cape Writers Center, two writing groups, and a contributor to Primetime Magazine. Always a journal writer, she is fascinated by history and writes a blog about the unique facts and myths of Cape Cod. barbarastruna.blogspot.com strunagalleries.com
