Barbara is new to writing and is thrilled to be part of The Last Sunday Writers. After working thirty-five years with Trans World Airlines, she took early retirement. Her husband was dealing with cancer, and they both became involved with a Writing for Wellness class. After the death of her husband in 2008, she wrote as part of her grieving process, and took writing classes through UCLA Extension. She now facilitates the Writing for Wellness class at the Cancer Support Community in Redondo Beach. She lives in Hermosa Beach, with a shy cat, Milagro, and a rowdy talkative dog, Lola.
