Overview

Splinters is the incredible true-story of Barbara Howell. An abandoned woman who faced her fears, endured her pain and overcame daunting obstacles to become successful in a man’s profession. This lady didn’t set out to prove anything. Her only goal was to pay her debts and survive.

Despite personal tragedies, professional mishaps, and overwhelming odds she became a success. The back-breaking labor of handling raw lumber didn’t stop her. Pushing and pulling heavy machinery didn’t stop her. Being incapable of driving a 58 foot rig all over the United States loaded with hardwood display cases, didn’t stop her. She kept on trucking.

She, along with her daughter and two granddaughters, birthed Southern Ladies Showcases by sweat, guts and tears. This successful business takes its rightful place in what was once, strictly a man’s profession.

Southern Ladies Showcases proudly has products in homes, businesses and museums across America and around the world. Barbara’s commitment to succeed, her courage and undefeated attitude will be an inspiration as you read this story of struggle and ultimate victory.

Splinters has one several awards including: Best Christian True-Story 2010, 2010 International Communicator Award, Graphic Design USA Award of Excellence 2010

Meet the Author

Barbara Howell has worn many hats. Her life has been made up of many careers: farmer, cosmetologist, wife, mother, grandmother, woodworker and now author.

Howell’s dream to write was birthed years ago while she attended the University of North Alabama. Unfortunately, no sooner than her dream was realized, it again died, as family crisis pulled her into another direction: woodworking.

Howell went on to become the owner of Southern Ladies Showcases, a business that specializes in hand-crafted custom display cases to fit every collection and hobby.

Rising to the top of a man's profession, Barbara didn't allow handicaps, personal tragedy or financial devastation to stop her. She persevered and today her display cases are in homes and businesses around the world.

Years later, after stabilizing the successful business, Howell picked up her pen and again began to write. This time, however, she truly had a story to tell. Howell’s first book, “Splinters: The Pain, The Passion, The Point” tells the story of her life.

Today, Howell spends most of her time, speaking and promoting Splinters, but still manages to find time to write for several magazines and is currently working on her second full-length book.

Howell is a member of the Tulsa Night Writers, The RHEMA Writers Bloc, The Fellowship of Christian Writers and the Oklahoma Writer’s Federation, Inc.
