Barbara Oliverio

Readers' Favorite Award™ Winner Barbara Oliverio is the daughter of Italian immigrants and is a real coal miner's daughter. She grew up in West Virginia with a love of reading and a passion for learning. Following a career path that included being a teacher, journalist, and marketer, she has lived as far away from home as Italy where she practiced her family's native tongue and took advantage of living near other European countries to travel extensively.

Her life-long joy in writing has culminated in novels that focus on young Catholic women in a positive light. Readers of all backgrounds have fallen in love with her charming characters who come from close-knit Catholic families who live out their faith.

She is also a freelance editor, professional book critic, and she mentors blossoming writers on their own paths.

A rabid Pittsburgh Steeler fan, she lives with her husband, an equally committed New York Giants fan, outside Orlando where off-football-season dinner conversation is calmer and is usually accompanied by a meal she cooks from one of her mother's treasured recipes. Other interests include New York Times crossword puzzles, good movies, and travel.
