Welcome to my website!


Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! I’m excited to share that Oklahoma City Writers Inc. has acknowledged my latest work with an Adult Fiction award. The working title was WHAT COULD GO WRONG but now is officially,



A dead body, a university co-ed, a hooker, and the city of Amsterdam. What do they have in common? Max Sterling!


  1. I, too, look forward to buying and reading your newest book. I always knew you were a woman of substance. Carry on.

  2. Congratulations! What a retirement project! Absolutely fantastic! Keep me posted on a publication date!

  3. Barbara., I’m so happy you are having such fun and creative adventures. Regarding your question, I like a combination of pleasure and difficulty in the characters so yes real life. I also like things to turn out well. Growing thru life to positive not necessarily perfection. Good luck!!

  4. What a great way to spend your time and enjoy creative pursuits, Barbara. I’m so impressed with your writing occupation. As to whether or not I prefer happy endings — while a happy ending can be satisfying in many ways, maybe that sort of ending can seem too predictable? It is perhaps the case that I prefer something less predictable. In that case I should really like how these last 12 months have developed. I’m not sure it is the case. “Endings” have been varied in so many ways in 2020 and into 2021. Developments may always keep on developing rather than “end?”

    No matter the ending, it is great to read what you write. Thanks for putting it out for us to read.
