In her non-writing life Barbara has;

       beaten AC/DC front man Bon Scott in a drumming competition (1963) 

       piped the last train out of Perth 1978 (Fremantle line later re-opened), 

       and held 50metre breaststroke records at AUSSIE (45-50yr olds).

She's been a debt collector and a secretary among other collective nouns. Has worked for a tripe manufacturer and a concrete railway sleeper contractor, along with more traditional businesses: electrical  suppliers, air-con manufacturers, brake repairers, and car dealerships. So much useless information gathered ... unless you're a writer!

Barb has two adult children. Her son lives in Prague with his wife and three children, thus giving Barbara and her husband a glorious holiday destination with free accommodation. A locally based daughter and son-in-law who she can share cake with, without an airfare being necessary. 

Barbara likes nothing better than to tap away on the computer, creating characters worth remembering and hiding her and other people's life experiences in the pages. 

Barb is a member of Gosnells Writers Circle Inc. (PR Officer)


Writefree Women's Group @ KSP Writing Centre.
