All About Barbara Meyers

When not writing fiction, Dr. Seuss-like poetry or song lyrics, Barbara Meyers can be found at the local Starbucks culling story ideas from customers while masquerading as a shift supervisor. Her hobbies include tormenting her long-suffering husband, interfering in the lives of her grown children, and sneaking into gated communities to walk her almost perfect dog, Pepper. Her latest release is A FOREVER KIND OF GUY from Samhain Publishing, the second in The Braddock Brotherhood series.

The hot water pouring down on him helped minimally. His head was pounding and his throat was raw. He had a God-awful taste in his mouth that gulping water had no effect on. Truth was he felt shaky and weak as a newborn kitten and he didn’t like the feeling. He also didn’t like knowing [...]

The Goal-less Life

I have discovered the best books are the ones where the goal is clear and the journey is fun to read about. Like living your best life, it’s good to have goals
