Biographical and Professional Information

Carpenter grew up in a small Midwest town, much like the fictional town of Redbud Grove, Illinois. Her love of writing began in the fourth grade and is now a passion, taking precedence over oil painting, which she also enjoys. Barbara has received awards and prizes for her poems and short stories, some of which are currently included in the curriculum of a California high school Literature class. She has been published in Reader's Digest and other periodicals, and her works appear in national magazines and anthologies, such as the Chicken Soup For the Soul books and Not Your Mother's Book ... On Being a Woman. Barbara was a member of the Cedarhurst Writer's Roundtable for many years.
