Even the number of cows that my protagonist Wilson Bentley kept in his cowshed.”

“Dr. Barbara’s response time is lightning fast, and always upbeat and positive.”

— Erin Hook Kelly, Winston-Salem, USA






“Barbara knows the direction that the plot of the novel is meant to take and therefore keeps to it. Nevertheless, she does intervene: She points out any errors in the general plan as well as any misunderstandings and pitfalls. She also suggests alternatives and possible additional scenes. She understands that an entertaining historical novel must have a factual background — while putting the focus on an exciting, lively story.”

— A writer, signed with one of Germany’s largest publishing houses


“Your material just arrived, and I feel so touched that someone who understands me so well should be pulling in the same direction as me.”
