Barbara Small

Hi all, I live on the South West Coast of Scotland in a seaside town which, like most of Scotland has a colorful history.

I'm a Midwife. I don't have any kids but I have two very spoiled Yorkshire Terriers who might disagree! I have a large extended family of which I am the oldest. So between my family and my job I am no stranger to babysitting. As well as reading and reviewing books I collect ceramic dragons enjoy walking on the nearby beach and I love to write.

Reading is an obsession, if there were more hours in the day I would fit in more books...
