'Barbara's writing is bold, original and enormous fun. In her screenplay 'Cowboy Girls' she cleverly puts the female at the very epi-centre of the traditionally male genre of the Western.'

Literary Editor – A gun for hire!

Am now a gun for hire! A fully credited Literary Editor, folks, so if anyone wants to hire this lone cowgirl, please just contact me on my email – barbara.mackie@btinternet.com or through this site. Been editing my friend Christine Lord’s book ‘Who Killed My Son?’ her powerful and moving indictment of the BSE, Mad Cow cover up that is soon to be published and we are turning into a screenplay together. Very moving, very true and hugely searing. A moving tale which will be out soon. I thoroughly enjoyed editing another writer’s work and cut, cut, cut calling myself Barbara Jane Scissorhands!
