- Your dress up clothes include yoga pants and t-shirts with sayings such as “The Past, Present and Future walked into a bar. It was tense.”
- You try to get out of a ticket by telling the officer you were just jotting a few notes of inspiration that came to you, could he please wait a minute, cuz you have to write it down RIGHT NOW!
- You try to convince your spouse that you NEEDED to buy/read all 157 books last year – it was RESEARCH!
- You believe a well-rounded diet consists of coffee, scotch, chocolate, popcorn and Luna Bars – in that order
- You find nothing wrong with sitting in front of a computer for three days straight, without showering, brushing your teeth or acknowledging the world outside your imagination.
- You have to ask yourself if there IS a world outside your imagination
- You have heart-to-heart talks with your characters, begging them to stay
- The letter’s “ing” and “ly” have earned a special place in hell, along with your first manuscript.
- You linger in front of the bookrack at the grocery store, chanting “some day, some day!”
- You find yourself attempting to describe every person you meet, every conversation you hear and every place that you go in beautiful, complex sentences that do not include words ending in “ing” or “ly.”

- You realize the Devil would make an UH-MAZE-ING character for your next novel

Kelsi always Knows when bad things are coming, but even she never thought she’d lose her husband at only twenty-three. Since he died, she’s been living her worst nightmare.
Her nights are filled with dreams of a Dark Haired Man, but her days are full of guilt, because the Man fills her with longing and confusion, promising to give her all she needs, all she wants, all she feared she’d never have again.
If only the dreams would stay in her head where they belong.
Kelsi starts seeing the Dark Haired Man in her waking life, shadowing her wherever she goes. And when her mysterious new neighbor, Aiden Hardt, knows about the Man in her dreams, Kelsi worries she can’t trust her own mind.
He’s not what he seems.
But even Aiden’s cryptic words don’t frighten her as much as the way she feels around him. Kelsi must sort through her emotions and figure out what’s real before she can ever hope to have a normal life again.
About the Author
Barbara was born and raised in Southern California, but left to explore the world courtesy of the U.S. Navy. After
traveling the world, she forced herself to live a humble life in in San Francisco, New York and Norfolk, Virginia. She now calls San Diego home and you won’t pry her out with a crowbar.
She would be the first to tell you her husband, Henry, is the inspiration for all the romance, and the real Charlie – who is as cute as he sounds in her books – is a terrorist. When not working for the U.S. Navy, she can be found running, reading or writing. She firmly believes a well rounded diet consists of coffee, scotch, chocolate, popcorn and Luna Bars. In that order.
She’s a graduate of CUNY and Penn State – and manages to write a decent line here and there despite those burdens.
