Barbara H., 70, Tampa, FL

Thanks to a generous donation from The Becket Family Foundation, Barbara’s wish to have her book published has come true!

Born in rural North Carolina, Barbara was forced, at a young age,  to protect her younger siblings from abusive parents.  Her youngest sister, wrote Twilight Wish saying “she has literally saved my life at least four times.”  Barbara has been an advocate for young people all her life.  She has written four books for young adults to help teach them the importance of character and perseverance in the face of adversity and uncertainty.  Her dream is to have one of those books published
