Profile Information

Barbara Woster was born in Georgia to a Southern Dad and a British mother. She spent most of her youth reading, which led to a love of writing; however, living life (raising a family) left little time to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard). Much later, when her two oldest children came across a folder of story ideas, they began to encourage (push, really) her to start writing again. That is why she dedicates all of her books to her children, because they really did inspire her writing and also because they encouraged (and still do) her to pick it up again.

Barbara has her dad to thank for the diversity of reading materials, which has led to a diversity of writing genres (written beneath different pseudonyms). When she was fourteen, a neighbor accidentally broke her knee. For an entire summer, she was laid up with only books for company; books primarily published by Harlequin. Her dad stopped in and noticed all of the Harlequin Romance novels strewn on the bed covers and immediately stepped back out. A short time later, he returned carrying Iceberg by Clive Cussler. "You need to expand your reading horizons," he said. To this day, Clive Cussler is one of her favorite authors, as is Diana Gabaldon, Dean Koontz, and Tom Clancy.

Her life, like her children, has provided much in the way of material to use for her books, all of which contain an element her past as well as much of her personality.

Barbara is a prolific writer with a passion for the written word. It is her hope that she will be writing for many years to come.
