About

Barb was raised in southern California and moved to the Bay Area to attend college when she was seventeen. She earned a Bachelor's Degree in Clinical Psychology at U.C. Berkeley, and a Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology at JFK University in the 1980's.

As a refuge from the demands of her child abuse job, Barb developed hobbies that were calming or a distraction or an outlet, like organic gardening, tiling, mosaic, painting, stained glass, construction with her sister, playing pool… and writing.

Barb retired in 2012 after 22 years as a child abuse investigator. Barb's chapbook, Boxing Without Gloves, came out in November 2014 on Finishing Line Press, and it was shortlisted for the 2015 Rubery International First Book Prize in London. Barb is currently working on a new poetry collection called "Drawing Words", as well as a biography & documentary called "Auntie Mark." Barb divides her time between Oakland, CA and Provincetown, MA. She studies with poet Jude Nutter.
