Welcome. I am so happy you found my website. In my blog you’ll find samples of my writing: poetry, memoir, and news about me. For instance, I’m hopping with the news that my first children book, The Bunny Poets, will be released by MacLaren-Cochrane Publishing in the spring of 2018.

I’m also the author of two collections of poetry, Undertow, and Water Over Time. Read a selection from Undertow on my blog.

I’ve been writing for years, and before this website I posted work at http://barbbits.blogspot.com.  The poem below, which I wrote last spring, seems fitting now. Let’s go!

Flying                                                                                           

Once I dreamed of flying
mastered the art
Launched from a hilltop
arms outstretched
Trusted the sky
to keep me aloft

Let’s go, I whispered
Featherless
I swooped, swayed
looped and played
with falling.
The breeze loved me

Unafraid
I looked down
Folks pointed
waved, hollered
I heard
See there?
Isn’t it easy?
