Hi, I’m Barbara McNeely, author and publisher in San Antonio, Texas.
Though I always knew I was meant to be a writer, early misunderstood feedback kept me from putting pen to paper for many years. In recent years, I have had several blogs and have even written articles for our local Natural Awakenings. “Lessons of an Opening Heart” is my first published book. I did not ever think that my first book would be about my recovery from open-heart surgery; but it turned out to be a good place to start.
I learned to love science in seventh grade from a teacher whose love of science was contagious. In college, I majored in biology and worked in research for several years. From there, I made the not-so-logical leap to computer programmer then web designer. But, my curiosity about health and wellness led me to study more about it. I have blogged for several years now, primarily on health topics and my own health issues. As it turned out, I needed that information during my recovery.
Today, I am both author and publisher. I am coaching authors who have a personal story they want to share in a book. And I consult and guide authors through the process of self-publishing their books.
