A Novel

Take a sneak peak at Barbara's just-released political thriller ... ​BREAKING NEWS

Thrillers are often told from a male point of view. In ​BREAKING NEWS, ​the story of a fired major network anchor seeking to redeem her self-respect and her broadcast career, it's the ladies' turn. But don't stop reading if you're a man ---things do blow up now and then, because someone close to the president wants him dead!. Expect murder, mystery, betrayals, power-plays, page-turning excitement, and a little romance, along with a fascinating cast of White House and newsroom characters.

Disgraced TV News Anchor Jillian Rain takes a last-chance job as a White House correspondent with D.C.’s new 24-hour Breaking News Network, rekindling her on-again/off-again romance with News Director Maks Vladikov. Determined to prove she's still a great journalist, Jillian covers the story of the mysterious crash of the VP’s helicopter and of a dysfunctional commander-in-chief. When the president's and first lady's dreams of a Camelot-like legacy end in an instant, Jillian's list of suspects trying to bring down the president grows. The danger becomes personal when a man she used to love begins stalking her, Maks’ ex-wife suddenly reappears, and a Russian bad guy who Maks helped put in jail comes looking for revenge.
