Barbara Raffin grew up a country girl, but loves to visit the big city and live the hurried pace now and then. Blessed with a vivid imagination, she’s created stories and adventures in one form or another for as long as she can remember. She wrote her first book at age twelve in retaliation to the lack of female leads in the adventure stories she loved reading. But it is a love of playing with words, exploring the human psyche, and telling stories that keeps her writing. She also loves to make her readers laugh and cry. Whether a romantic romp or gothic-flavored suspense, her books have one common denominator: characters who are wounded, passionate, and searching for love.
She lives on the Michigan-Wisconsin border with her Keeshonden dogs Katie and Slippers and her avid outdoorsman husband who continues to support her love affair with reading and writing. Visit Barbara’s web site to learn more about her and her books.
