Barbara Baldwin was born in California, married in Iowa and now resides in Kansas. The years in between were lived in many of the southern states and three years in Japan, as her fa-ther was an Air Force pilot. That probably explains why she still loves to travel and explore new places. She has written practically all her life, beginning with journals of family vaca-tions. She is published in poetry, short stories, essays, maga-zine articles, teacher resource materials, and full-length fic-tion. She has a BS in Education and an MA in Communications and has been a secretary, teacher, grant writer and has worked for public television. Her torrid romance novel, How Far Will You Go? is available from Whiskey Creek Press-Torrid Division.
