BookBrowse Reviewer

Creator and chief editor of A Woman's Write, Barbara Bamberger Scott grew up in North Carolina. In 1980 she went overseas, working for Quakers and Mennonites in Botswana, Kenya and the Dominican Republic. She homesteaded in Spain and worked in a B&B in London, returning to America in 1994, having learned to speak Spanish, play the fiddle, and live off-the-grid. In addition to her independent writing projects, she and husband Donnie "Dobro" Scott have co-authored songs and one book and enjoy in-town homesteading in Mount Airy, NC (aka Mayberry), where Barbara works for a not-for-profit jobs program.
