About Barbara Hawkins

Botswana

Barbara Hawkins has lived a variety of lives: as a botanist–collecting plant specimens from Latin American jungles, engineer–building wetlands, parks, and roads, finally as an author of historical fiction, science fiction, and international travelogues. Adventure travel is a hobby she’s had since before it had a name. If she isn’t at home writing, she’s off traveling.
