Barbara   Gurney

PERTH-BASED Barbara Gurney’s writing is described as lyrical with strong narrative. She says news items often influence her poems while over-heard life experiences are hidden in short stories.

She is proud of her diverse publications: Fiction: Road to Hanging Rock, The Promise, Ribbons of Love, and Lessons of the Universe with Imogene Constantine. Short-Story Collection: Purple and Other Hues. Poetry: Footprints of a Stranger, Life’s Shadows.


Barbara likes nothing better than to tap away on the computer, and creating characters worth remembering. She finds satisfaction in writing stories and poetry for others to enjoy.
