About the Author
Barbara's writing journey began at the University of Wyoming, USA. Her first fiction writing class inspired her to write a short mystery, Murder at Wainwright. In another semester, during an internship in UW's Toppan Rare Books Library, she examined women in nineteenth-century Mormon polygamy. Her research paper won a student competition at the American Heritage Center. She graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Art. Her accumulated early-Mormon research and interest in mystery writing led to her first trade-published novel Blood Atonement, a historical mystery. That first short mystery she later rewrote it into Clear and Convincing Evidence, which was also trade published. Tarnished Gold is her third published novel.
