Author / Ghostwriter
Barbara Fox is a Geordie exile living in the south east, who was a journalist before she began writing books.
Bedpans & Bobby Socks, the story of her mother’s 1950s road trip across America with a troop of fellow nurses, was published in 2011, and led to a collaboration with farmer and shepherdess Emma Gray and the books One Girl and Her Dogs and My Farming Life.
She returned to her own life and that of her mother to write Is the Vicar in, Pet? and When the War Is Over, worked with Wendy Grey Rogerson on Midwife of Borneo and edited the Second World War diaries Eve’s War.
She finds every person fascinating and loves helping others to write their stories.
