Bio Barbara Wyatt is the author of the popular Canadian novel, "Wind on the Sounds: A Novel Set on the Yacht Race Around Vancouver Island Canada. Her articles have appeared in in Boys' Life, Good Old Boat, World and I, New York Tennis Magazine and Northwest Travel, among other publications. Her fiction is published in several anthologies that featured Pacific Northwest writers and published by Muddy Puddle Press. "Prairie Girls" came to her after reading a series of articles by her grandmother who wrote for the Winnipeg Free Press in the 1920s. When she isn't sailing the waters of the Pacific Northwest, Wyatt is playing tennis, hiking, skiing, and always working on her next novel.
