World’s Most Easily Distracted Writer
As part of her work in national security, Barbara traveled around the world to fabulous cities – Paris, Vienna, Geneva, London, Moscow, DC, Las Vegas, and in the countryside of Lithuania, Romania, and Mongolia. She has worked with amazing people – a dozen or so Ambassadors (Goodby, Lehman, Hamner, Joseph, …), former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, security and law enforcement personnel from dozens of countries, and hundreds of some of the smartest, most creative people you’d ever meet in the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. She left the field of defense and arms control behind and is now focusing on writing.
Barbara has published
- A Month in Mongolia, pictorial travelogue of time in the Mongolian countryside;
- The Corner Stone, Annotated, by Margaret Hill McCarter from the 1915 original publication; and
- Respect the Work, describing the process of (re-)publishing works from the public domain.
Her works in progress include historical fiction, an international medical thriller, and a nonfiction study on principles of leadership in practice.
That is, when she’s not otherwise distracted.
