My most recent book, as Barbara Roman, is "Alicia and the Light Bulb People in Star Factory 13." It is an enchanting tale of friendship, courage, and realizing your star potential through the magic of believing! Mystical illustrations by Vladimir Cebu. Soon to be available in Print edition.
Another book, as Barbara Roman, is "Hubert in Heaven," is a delightful children's story, with a Christmas theme, and a message for all of us who are too attached to our hi-tech "toys."

Since childhood, I've been torn between two worlds: writing and singing. It's difficult to serve "two masters," as they say, but I was compelled to do so. When I was not singing, I was writing; when I was not writing, I was singing. Now I do both. (While still working a day job!).
I've learned, for me, that one creative expression nurtures the other. Much of my writing has a musical theme somewhere in the plot, or is the plot. Whether it's in my non-fiction writing about the power of music itself, in picture books and stories and, of course, in writing music and lyrics for songs.
It is natural, therefore, that my trilogy of adventures for young readers, "The Moon Singer" (formerly "The Secrets of the Moon Singer") has its roots in musical theories and metaphors, entwined with the magic and mystery of metaphysical concepts and matters of ethics, faith, compassion, love, and heroism. Book 1 (The Crystal Clipper) and Book 2 (The War Chamber) lay the groundwork for this power of music of the highest order. Book 3 (The Wind Rose) pulls it all together and will, I hope, give readers a complete understanding of the importance of music in our lives and in the world.
On the other side of the spectrum, "Whatever Became of Sin?" is a departure from a higher consciousness to the mundane world of flawed humans, amoral people committing immoral crimes and eventually paying the price for their transgressions. Penning a thriller sort of grounds me and helps to clear my mind of darker thoughts so I can go back to writing empowering fantasies.
I hope you will delight in their messages just as I was delighted to write them.
