About Barbara

While earning my Master's Degree from Ohio University on a full fellowship, I taught writing to freshman college students. I enjoyed teaching more than any other requirement for my degree. My B.A. is in English and I graduated magna cum laude from UMass at Dartmouth. I was invited by my English advisor to teach a class to sophomores on William Faulkner in preparation for graduate school.

For the past 20 years I've owned and operated a boutique book pr firm, writing press materials and talking points for first-time authors and famous writers, too. Paul R. Krugman, New York Times OpEd Columnist and Nobel Lauriate in Economics has been my client since 1999. We have launched 8 of his books and conducted author tours across the country, comprising 8 - 26 cities. The biography I wrote for him was read during the Nobel Prize ceremony.

Every day I do writing on behalf of my clients and I train the publicists in my firm to write clearly. My firm is known for is excellent written materials and for taking the essence of a book and pitching it into the news. Many of our business clients have built million dollar businesses after a successful book launch. Some my most successful clients include C.K. Prahalad, Warren Bennis, Bill George, Michael Bloomberg whom I represented before he became Mayor, Ken Blanchard and Ambassador Joe Wilson.

Writing and the written word are my life's work. I'd like to help you express your ideas and improve your grades. Please contact me and I will work out a reasonable rate for us to work together.
