Each month, we’ll feature a local author in our newsletter and on our website. Featured books should have been published within the last two years and the author should be local to Clearview Library District. The Library will hold the author’s work to the same standards as those used for collection development. Please query Casey at if you would like to be featured. We will also add a donated copy of your book to the Library’s collection. For more information about how authors can have their work showcased at the library, please read The Clearview Library District's Local Author Policy.

A five book series, the Badger books depict farm life through the eyes of a Border Collie named Badger. He introduces children to the animals, tools, tractors, and people on his farm. A glossary and activity pages are included at the end of each book.

Rhyaden follows the life and adventures of a young boy, Niall, who is unaware of his lineage and why he has a special tutor that helps guide him as he comes of age. He discovers that the choices he makes are ultimately what determine who he will be, and while discovering this, finds out that his tutor is the last of the dragons - there to right a wrong from the past and ensure freedom in the world for humans.

Wait Here, Wait There deals with the realities of Alzheimer’s and pushing one’s self through and beyond grief.

About the Author

Barbara was born in Colorado and still resides there. Her lifelong love for horses and the outdoors led to a life of farming and ranching. She spearheaded a ten year project in rural eastern Colorado to establish The Grassroots Community Center, park, and health clinic. A board member of the Foundation for nine years, she became the Executive Director of the Center when it opened. After retiring from ranching, her long dormant love for writing bloomed and she returned to school, earning a BA in English Literature from UCCS. A life long love of T.H.White’s classic, “The Once and Future King” and her granddaughter’s love for dragon stories were a major inspiration for “Rhyaden,” to be released on Nov. 13th, 2018. Barbara is the mother of three children, and grandmother of five. She loves gardening, kayaking, bike riding, snow-shoeing, and visiting National Parks. Through her bi-weekly blog she corresponds with people around the globe on all topics of everyday life. For more info visit her web-site
