Barbara is a BBC trained script and screenwriter, an author, composer and lyricist.
'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.'

The Last Chance Mommas

‘The Last Chance Mommas’ tells the moving tale of Macy, a Cruise Ship singer who returns the Isle of Wight, where she grew up, called back by the long-lost daughter she gave up for adoption years ago. 

When her daughter, Sophie, (now pregnant, and unbeknown to Macy, slowly dying of cancer) asks her mother to form an all female band to play at a benefit concert, Macy has to scramble to drag together all her school mates on the Isle of Wight.  No easy task! When Sheena, Macy’s long lost mother, an alcoholic ex-Punk star, turns up on the island, Macy’s life gets complicated as she struggles to put on a show for her dying daughter.

A film with real heart – a British ‘A Star is Born.’
