About the Author

Barbara was born in San Diego, California, but basically was raised all over the United States; at least that's what it seemed like when she had to list the twenty-three schools she'd attended in her college application. Barbara and her sister and brother learned to adapt to new places. From East coast to West coast, they lived at the edge of the Dismal Swamp in North Carolina, fed the ducks in Fenway Park in Boston where Barbara went to Girls Latin School, and experienced their only hurricane in Charleston, South Carolina. They also lived in Tucson, Arizona, New York City, the San Diego area, and finally the Los Angeles and Orange county areas of California. Later, as an adult, Barbara spent time living in Nome, Alaska, which was a fantastic experience.

Some of those years have become part of Barbara's fictional characters' backgrounds.

Now that Barbara's retired after thirty-four years of teaching, she's excited by her new and growing career in writing. "Growing" hardly describes Barbara's leaps and bounds of recent achievements. Her novel A Breath Of Heather (the second book in her popular and best-selling Sons of Earth & Wind series) won First Place in the Paranormal, Time Travel, Fantasy category of the 2001 Orange Rose Award contest. Additionally, the book was named a finalist in both Affaire de Coeur's Reader-Writer poll and in the Daphne Du Maurier Award (Paranormal Category). Moreover, A Touch of Fire (the third book in the Sons of Earth & Wind series) was christened the winner of the 2001 Golden Quill Award in the paranormal romance category. The literary world, not to mention the voracious fans of paranormal romance, wonders why she didn't retire years earlier with the quality of product she continually produces. Indeed, in 2002, two of Barbara's novels—Dangerous Haven and Deserts Of The Heart—also became finalists in the 2002 Crystal Globe Awards, for Best Overall Romantic Fiction!

Additionally, Barbara also writes under the pseudonym April Reid when she wants to stretch her writing skills into the erotica genre. Readers will find the same quality in stories by "April" as they have come to expect in stories by "Barbara." The only difference is the stories will be more steamy and over-the-top. Always, they will be action-filled...in more ways than one.

Format:Paperback
A BREATH OF HEATHER is book two in the Sons Of Earth And Wind series. It focuses on couple Heather Carter and Quinn Archer. Heather is an elementary school teacher who loves children as much as she loves gardening. Actually, she has a deep obsession with gardening and getting her hands in the earth. Quinn is a man on edge, never trusting a woman, and someone who tries hard to deny his feelings for Heather. At the beginning of the novel, it starts out with danger and suspense and this continues throughout the story as well as the love and bond Quinn and Heather create. Heather also has a bond with Quinn's six year old daughter, Brianne.
Ms. Clark writes interesting secondary characters as well, drawing them in, and making you care for them. She makes you want to know their story besides Heather and Quinn's.
Quinn has been betrayed by secrets and Heather is full of them. Heather is being stalked and Quinn is very adept in the security department. For many reasons such as security and the feeling of a growing love, they both need each other no matter how much either denies it.
Quinn has his own danger and by the end of the story when it is at its climax, you have love, suspense, and danger that keeps you flipping the pages.
The love that Queen develops for Heather is staggering, especially since it is the last thing he wants. The trust and selflessness that IS Heather is shocking, incredible, and makes for a dramatic story. I cried throughout this book at different times because of the touching scenes between them just as I screamed in fury when the villains hurt Quinn or Heather.
Overall, Ms. Clark has struck gold and created a winner! I highly recommend this book as well as any others by her! ...

Oh to be Heather and have the power to control nature! The author did a great job here. Although frustrating, I was rather glad to see that the hero did not readily accept the heroine's gifts. It was a true test of their relationship.

A BREATH OF HEATHER by Barbara Clark published by Starlight Writer Publications
Review by Barbara (Babs) Lakey
A Breath of Heather is a breath of joy, a gift to the reader.
This latest work from Barbara Clark reminds me of a passage from The Invitation by Oriah Mountain Dreamer: "It doesn't interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the center of the fire with me and not shrink back."
Heather and Quinn do stand in the fire for one another. You can feel their fire for each other and for Quinn's daughter, Brianna. These are noble people who care deeply and yet have pasts that threaten to keep them apart. Fate chooses to bring them together: Heather is Brianna's teacher, a teacher with a power-a power that saves lives. Heather is a strong woman, the kind we women like to read about because we know they are the `real' thing. As a reader, you know that she will stay away from the man she has fallen in love with if she feels that he and his daughter may come to harm because of a curse that follows her. And you do not want her to stay away! In Barbara's words, Quinn works as "a silent shadow in a world of moonlight and dark pools". Both Heather and Quinn bring danger to the equation and this keep the suspense high throughout.
Barbara Clark is a skillful character weaver who knows how to bring you close to those she loves. She writes about people with values, people who deserve to have good things happen in their lives and we rejoice seeing justice for the good for once! We feel for them and we care what happens in their lives. If you like to read about people from the real world, see them overcome the dangers that life lays in their paths, this book is for you. It is strong in plot, suspense, romance, characters and pacing. Do yourself a favor--Buy it! Read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another exceptional book in this series.... March 29 2003
By Teri L. Perez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:CD-ROM|Verified Purchase
Heather Carter is an elementary school teacher, and in the opening pages of this book, gang activity places the children on the playground in a perilous situation. Heather uses her abilities to call the wind, thus averting the situation until the police arrive. Enter Quinn Archer, student Brianna's dad, who has arrived to pick her up from school, and is an ex-ATF agent. Quinn and Heather strike up a friendship over Brianna, which quickly develops into much more than the casual friendship it started out as.

Both Quinn and Heather have troubled pasts. Due to the murder of Heather's husband, the suspicious death of her brother, and enemies Quinn made in his previous job, their enemies become common foe. Quinn develops a fierce protective streak towards Heather, and vows to protect her from the gang threatening her. Everyone Heather holds dear to her seems to meet with an untimely death, and although she knows deep down inside the deaths aren't her fault, she fears this will be the end result with Quinn also.
As the plot intensifies, Quinn sends Brianna away to keep her safe. Quinn and Heather work together to survive the double cross against them, along with a cast of incredible secondary characters. Will Quinn be able to accept the psychic ability Heather possesses, and build a life with her? As in "Tears of the Hawk", this book has it all - riveting plot, suspense, romance, and wonderful characters. Can't wait for Michael's story in the next book in this series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another exciting book from Barbara Clark! March 1 2000
By M. Draper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:CD-ROM
Having read Ms. Clark's first book, Tears of the Hawk, I was delighted and thrilled to see that my first impressions of her ability to enthrall me as a reader were absolutely correct. In A Breath of Heather, a prequel to her other book, Ms. Clark once again makes you believe in the possibility of an alternative reality.
Heather's ability to use the wind--an almost Wiccan quality--is a wonderful plot device. However, Heather is not superwoman -- she is at once both vulnerable and strong. The wind can't always save her, but when you have a man like Quinn around who needs supernatural powers?
I'm awaiting with bated breath Michael's story -- after tantilizing us in two books about the sinister Feo and the rescue of Michael by Quinn and Hawk -- Ms. Clark couldn't be so cruel as not to write his story. If she does, I'll be one of the first in line to read it.
Bravo Ms. Clark -- may you never run out of plots.
