Barbara-Helene Smith

BarbaraHelene Smith discovered story telling after enrolling in a summer creative writing course.  Fiction set her imagination free and she was hooked! Her short stories and poetry have been published in IdeaGems, The Storyteller, Adventures of the Average Woman, Howling Halloween Anthology and Crusin’ Style Magazine

An avid fan of who-done-it mysteries, BarbaraHelene can usually guess the outcome long before the book or television show ends. Inspired by intrigue, she uses her experiences from previous careers as a scientist, investigator and consultant to plot her own suspense stories. Her first book, Assume Nothing, can be found at Amazon.com as a paperback and e-book.

Assume Nothing incorporates four, short mysteries about ordinary women who find themselves in extraordinary situations. Each story can be read in a couple of hours while on a beach, an airplane, by the pool, next to a fire on a cold winter afternoon or sitting in a comfy chair with a steaming cup of coffee, tea or a glass of your favorite wine. 

Coming soon is Death by Dysfunction, the first in the Connie Murphy series.  Connie is a FDA investigator, who is dedicated to protecting public safety, but while conducting seemingly routine inspections, intrigue and danger intervene. 

When not writing, BarbaraHelene can be found hiking with friends, working on genealogy or volunteering at the local humane society.
