Thanks for dropping by!

Hello! I’m Barbara and I write books (buy HERE) for young people and visit schools for workshops and author events. It’s such a shame that I can’t get out to meet readers in person at the moment, although I hope that will soon be the case again. I hope you are all keeping well.  I am the author of six books for 8-12 year olds:

By the way, I love connecting with readers and with other writers, so please leave comments on my blog and follow me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter by clicking on the icons – I’d love to hear from you!
