About Barbara Hawkins

Lesotho, barren for as far as the eye can see.

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.

Have you ever climbed outcrops in Australia to view Kakadu National Park?

Watched a glassmaker in Murano make Venice glass?

Followed Inca Indians in dugouts along the Amazon?

Hung out with friends during Semana Santa in Guatemala? 

Taken a break on an elephant’s head while in Botswana?

 I am always looking for something different to see or do.
