'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.'

Anthony Minghella, Oscar winning

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!
