Bio: Barb's primary Alaska career has been in education, starting with high school and ending after 27 years at the Kenai Peninsula College campus of UAA. Writing joins gardening, ethnic literatures, community volunteerism, and world travel with her husband as life interests. Besides two academic books and several articles in national journals, she has had stories and poetry published in Alaska small literary magazines. She has presented at national conventions and the Kachemak Bay Writers Conference.
