Barbara Bockman Hosts a Vampire

All rise and show your respect to Glaistig, Scotland's resident vampire. She visits on Barbara Bockman's blog, Stories a la Mode.

About Barbara (from her blog):

I’ve always loved stories and the interesting way certain people have with words. So I majored in English and Library Science in college, and later, with a Master’s Degree in English, I taught my subject at Pensacola Junior College. Having long wanted to try my hand at it, I started writing stories for children.

Story ideas are all around me. One of the fun things about traveling is learning new facts and feeling the lives of people who lived in those exotic locales. I especially love folk tales and myths.

I also enjoy stories about contemporary children and situations. I like to turn them into mysteries. My family have been indulgent enough to allow me to write about them, as well.

I have benefited greatly by the help given to me by my fellow writers in two critique groups. THANKS! You know who you are!I’m hoping to make more friends through this blog. Please feel free to leave a comment and introduce yourself.
