    BestSelling Author

Award winning, international Amazon #1 bestselling author Barbara Longley and each of her four siblings were born in different states, and because her family moved so frequently, she learned early on how to entertain herself with stories. As an adult, she has lived on a commune in the Appalachians, taught on an Indian reservation, and traveled from coast to coast. When her own children came along, she decided to try something new—staying put. Now she divides her time between Minnesota and the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee.

Barbara holds a Masters in Education, and taught for many years. She enjoys exploring things mythical, metaphysical, paranormal and anything newsworthy. Much of what she learns makes its way into her stories, where all things are possible. She is a longstanding member of RWA, and is listed on their Honor Roll of Bestselling Authors.
