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.'

Wobble – Barbara Jane Mackie

Ok, folks, it’s official! Have started WOBBLE my follow-up novel to EAT THE VIEW, which will be set in Ryde, Isle of Wight, where I live. Opening scene in a beach hut overlooking the wonderful sweep of Appley Beach, as our angst-ridden writer, Alpha O’Mara, struggles with her first chapter – as did I this week! Hell’s Bells? A first chapter has to do SO much! Not just set up the entire novel, but the themes, the central characters – well, some of them – establish sympathy for the protagonist and so on – phewwww! But nailed it so am charging on now with WOBBLE!
