Barrett grew up in the Chicago suburbs. Art and music fuelled an overactive imagination that eventually channelled into a flair for the dramatic and a dream of acting. Life and times deferred that dream but offered a new challenge.
After relocating to New Mexico, Barrett set down roots and fell helplessly into a new passion—writing. Then it was time to take the leap of faith and consider publication. That was when the real “learning” began. Readers, betas, critiques, mentors, edits, revisions, revisions, revisions, and then some pitches, some rejections, and some more revisions. And now, Barrett’s got books, published books. Her first book, Damaged in Service was a finalist for a Golden Crown Literary Society Award. It is the first of a four book series. But that’s not all for this story . . .
