About the Author

Barbara's first novel, What Jonah Knew , is a haunting tale of psychological suspense about a seven-year-old boy whose uncanny memories of Henry Bird, a musician who has mysteriously disappeared, defy conventional explanation and ultimately put Jonah's life in grave danger. Seen through the eyes of both Jonah's and Henry's mothers, the unfolding events radically alter their view of motherhood, as well as life--and death--because of what Jonah knows. Barbara is the New York Times bestselling author of Eye of My Heart, Camp Paradox and Women Who Run with the Poodles . Her essays have appeared widely in such places as Time, O, National Geographic Traveler and Vogue, and her plays have been produced in New York and around the country.
