Barbara A Hamilton

Biography

Barbara A Hamilton is a retired IT professional who stumbled into writing almost by chance.. Barbara started blogging some funny stories in February 2015.  During the following months she gathered quite a few interested readers. After a summer hiatus, she spent the month of September adding ten more stories to her collection which she decided to publish as Children's eBooks. Five months later she has three books published and several more in the pipeline at various stage of production --  editing, illustration, packaging (book cover), publishing and last but certainly not least, marketing.
Her early childhood in rural Ireland was rife with interesting and sometimes comical experiences. Having an eccentric English mother added colour and adventure to her small life. As a young girl she came to fully understand the saying "Mad dogs and Englishmen". Much of the content of the stories are derived from childhood experiences in rural Ireland in the forties where imagination and ingenuity were the only 'devices' available to most Irish children.
In the mid eighties, Barbara spent four years of her professional career, in the Far East, living in Singapore and Tokyo.She travelled extensively to many parts of the Asian and Australian continents. Life there has a singular vibrancy that spills into one's soul. Barbara believes it was a great privilege to have lived and worked there. Eventually she would like to share some of those experiences with you. She lives in Hillsburgh, Ontario, Canada with her three dogs, Mo-mo, Sam and Pippa
