When Barbara Phinney took an early retirement from the Canadian Army, she set her sights on writing. She's always loved romance and with two children and a Maritimer husband, romantic comedy seemed a natural choice. Indeed, many of the people around her were the inspiration behind the characters in her book, All For A Good Cause. Barbara now lives in New Brunswick, where her story is set, happily raising a family and enjoying the blessings of her friends. She invites her readers to write to her.
