Read full description of the books:
When Maggie Graham lost her job and her apartment fell to pieces, she decided to flee New York City for a while and hide in Vermont, at the Crossroads Theatre. She hadn't planned to audition, yet soon found herself part of the summer stock cast. But her previous acting experiences couldn't prepare her for the theater's unusual staff-and its handsome, almost otherworldly director.

Read information about the authorBarbara wrote her first novel "Cherokee the Wild Pinto" when she was eight years old and prepared the final manuscript on her Tom Thumb typewriter. She discovered the joy of performing when her sister dressed her up as a Pilgrim and had her sing "Over the River and Through the Woods" for Thanksgiving. After that, she was hooked on theatre, performing in shows ranging from "Guys and Dolls" to Greek tragedy.
She abandoned a career in educational administration to pursue a life in the theatre, working as an actress in summer stock and dinner theatre and later, as a lyricist and librettist. She’s written everything from cantatas to choral pieces, one-hour musicals for children to full-length ones for adults. Her musicals have been performed throughout the world, including the New York Musical Theatre Festival and the Edinburgh International Festival.
Barbara lives near New York City with her husband whom she met while performing in the play "Bedroom Farce." They have bookcases in every room (including the bathroom) with an eclectic collection of leather bound classics and beat-up paperbacks, reference books and play scripts, nonfiction books on religion, philosophy, and crime, historical fiction and fantasies, and cookbooks that Barbara consults whenever she has to make anything more complicated than spaghetti.
SPELLCAST is her first contemporary fantasy and is inspired by her years as an actress. The sequel - SPELLCROSSED - will be published by DAW Books in 2012. Her short stories appear in the anthologies "After Hours: Tales from the Ur-Bar" and "The Modern Fae's Guide to Surviving Humanity."
