Read Barbara’s short stories here


Life has so many possible outcomes. From the simple question what if? a thousand stories can evolve. This is how novelist, Barbara Jaques, finds inspiration, through questions of coincidence and uncertainty. Another big question she likes to ask is who is buying my books? Whoever you are, thank you. And.. ahem… reviews are very welcome: say what you feel; it’s a journey!

Born in a tiny town in Alberta to wandering parents before their return to Bristol, Barbara has also wandered a little, although is now settled in Wiltshire with her family, close to her childhood home.

Book Clubs

I’m always happy to speak to book groups via phone or video call. And if your book group is in or around Bath, UK, we can meet in person too.
