I'm an internationally published novelist who teaches creative writing and babysits her hoard of lovely grandkids.
What can I say? Barbara and her friend Audrey were perfect guests and left the cottage spotless!
I have known Barbara for almost 30 years, first as fellow graduate students, then as friends as well as professional colleagues. Barbara is responsible and reliable. Her home is immaculate, and I know that she would treat anyone else's home with the same care she takes with her own.
Barbara is the first person I turn to whenever I'm stuck with a writing or editing problem. She is that good! Barbara edited my book for me, and I couldn't have done it without her. Not only can she write and edit, but she is extremely knowledgeable about structure. As a professional, she is reliable, dedicated, and over-the-top creative. As a house guest, I would welcome Barbara in my home at any time.
I have known Barbara for over 10 years and have found her to be extremely reliable, going out of her way to be sure she meets all of her commitments on time. She is also a meticulous housekeeper and I always love visiting her beautiful home. She would be an ideal guest.
