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. She has always believed in the everyday magic that lives inside each one of us — the kind of magic that happens when you close your eyes and wish with all your might and believe with all your heart.
