Author Details

Where I Live
Barbara Townsend’s writing journey began at the University of Wyoming. During her first fiction writing class she felt compelled to write a mystery. The thought of twists, turns, red herrings, clues and making them all fit into one story fascinated her. That first short story, Murder at Wainwright, she later wrote into Clear and Convincing Evidence. An internship in the Toppan Rare Books Library led her in another direction. With books dating from the 1800s, she wrote a thesis that examined women in nineteenth-century Mormon polygyny. That paper won a student competition at the university’s American Heritage Center. Her accumulated research led to historical mystery Blood Atonement. Her writing credits include the university’s newspaper and Air Force newspapers. She was first a student then a faculty member of the Wyoming Writing Project. She graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree.
