About Barbara Davis

Barbara is a Jersey girl raised in the south, now living and writing in Florida. Confused? Constantly. Happy? Deliriously! But then, living your dream will do that! After fifteen years of wearing heels and schlepping a briefcase as an executive in the jewelry industry, she traded in my pinstripes for a little peace of mind, and decided to follow her dream of becoming a women’s fiction author. And what a ride it’s been! Six books later, she’s still pinching herself, and she’s still as much in love with writing as she was the day she began this journey. Maybe it’s because she believes in miracles (and magic!), in happy endings, and new beginnings. Heaven knows she’s had her share.

She’s blessed to be married to her best friend and soul mate, Tom, who she must say, sets the bar pretty high for her on-the-page heroes. They also have a lovely ginger cat named Simon, who is twenty years old, wretchedly spoiled, and doesn’t give a fig if she’s on deadline or not. When she’s not making up stories, you’re likely to find her reading, cooking, watching college football, (Go Gators!) or spreading a little sunshine over on Facebook, on The Sunshine Page.
