Barbara Delinsky has written twenty one New York Times bestselling novels with over thirty million copies in print. Her books are highly emotional, character-driven studies of marriage, parenthood, sibling rivalry, and friendship. Barbara’s newest novel,Sweet Salt Air is filled with gut-wrenching emotion, family drama, and forbidden love. All that, plus a plethora of taste and smell, make it as sensual a book as Barbara has written in years!
Her first foray into non-fiction occurred in October 2001 with the publication of Uplift: Secrets from the Sisterhood of Breast Cancer Survivors . Uplift is a handbook of practical tips and upbeat anecdotes that she compiled with the help of 350 breast cancer survivors, their families and friends. A breast cancer survivor herself, Barbara has donated the entirety of her author proceeds of Uplift to create and fund a yearly fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital that trains a surgical oncologist in research. A new Tenth Anniversary Edition of Uplift went on sale September 27, 2011.
Barbara lives with her family in Greater Boston, where she enjoys knitting, photography, and cats. You can find Barbara on Facebook, Twitter, her blog and her website, www.barbaradelinsky.com.
