About BarbaraSissel

I was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and grew up at various locations, mostly in the Midwest. I have always been a lover of stories. The bug to write came over me when I was reading Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte and the dream stayed with me through life as the wife of a prison warden in Kentucky and the births there of my two sons. When I finally sat down to write the experience of living with my family on the grounds of a prison is what influenced me. Justice and forgiveness are central issues in my stories. How far is it to unforgivable? What happens when an ordinary family is impacted by a sudden, extraordinary calamity? These are the themes that resonate. I am the author of three novels, The Last Innocent Hour, The Ninth Step, and The Volunteer coming in October 2011. In addition to writing fiction, I also work freelance as an editor. My articles and short stories have appeared in several venues. Currently, I live and write in The Woodlands, Texas.
