Author of the bestselling Assignment: Romance series, Barbara may be a corporate minion by day, but by night and weekends (and the occasional bank holiday), she’s the author of slice-of-life romantic comedies. A second-generation journalist, her work has also appeared in Tribune Media publications as well as the lifestyle sites, Mom.Me and BlogHer.

A member of the Women’s Fiction Writers Association and Romance Writers of America, Barbara was dubbed an “Indie Star” by Publisher’s Weekly after they granted False Start, her first manuscript, a coveted starred review. The first in her Assignment: Romance series, this novel was followed by four more (with book #6 scheduled for a 2023 release).
