Barb Bissonette is a retired medical nurse of forty years at Soldiers Memorial Hospital in Orillia, Ontario. She completed a mission to Dominican Republic with the Sisters of Charity to work among the people living there. She loved nursing, but has always enjoyed reading and writing. As a child, she would write poetry and short stories. Barb belongs to the Muskoka Authors Association. Her favorite person is — and always will be — Lucy Maud Montgomery, the great Canadian author.
Barb has had three novels published with Strategic Book Group: Among Little Faces, A Winter Town, and Leave a Light on for Christmas. One of the highlights of her career was meeting Lucy Maud’s granddaughter at a book signing in Norval. Lucy Maud’s granddaughter bought one of Barb’s Christmas books which is set in Norval and speaks of her grandmother and her life there.
Her book, Just a Bit of Magic, is scheduled for publication in Spring 2020.
