Barbara K. is an enthusiastic and dedicated librarian. The same qualities that stand her in good stead in the library profession also contribute to her success as a writer. Attention to detail, the ability to locate information on any subject with little or no advance notice, devotion to learning, and the capacity to think critically and creatively (and to help young people develop these capabilities) are the hallmarks of great librarians and quality writers.
After earning a B.A. from the University of Oklahoma and a Master of Arts in Library Science from the prestigious University of Michigan, Barbara worked in a college library and as a librarian in a religious organization and its school. Her experiences as her children's first teacher paved the way for a new facet of her career: school librarianship.
Like every member of her profession, Barbara is a bibliophile. She is able to read more than one book at a time and, when she finishes one, write an informative, detailed, and attention-getting review for her site or any other venue. Barbara also regularly receives requests from publishers to read and review their books. In addition, she composes promotional materials and fascinating articles about reading, information sources, must-read books, and notable authors.
