Barbara Claypole White 

I grew up in rural England with dreams of being a novelist. So, armed with a history degree, I became a publicist for London fashion. Passing through JFK Airport one day, I fell in love with an American professor. Eighteen months later I was a marketing director in the Midwest cornfields, and I had a secret: I was writing a novel. An incredibly bad one. When my husband was offered a distinguished professorship at UNC Chapel Hill, we moved to the North Carolina forest where I became a woodland gardener and a stay-at-home mom. Gradually, I carved out time to write each day, but it wasn't until our young son developed obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) that I started writing hopeful family drama with a healthy dose of mental illness.
