Barbara A. Luker is a late starter. Some would say better late than never and if you are a fan of her writing you might agree. After years of working in local government, she discovered a long dormant passion for writing that culminated in the release of her first book, “Remembering You”. But that was only the beginning and her newest novel “I Carry Your Heart” was released in 2022. Her next book, “The Right One”, is scheduled for release in September, 2023. Luker is a master of creating love stories with a twist that are sure to keep readers turning the page and reaching for the tissues.
A life-long resident of Minnesota most of her works have a Minnesota connection and each book centers on a solid love story, family and what we do for those we love. She survived an F4 tornado that destroyed three-quarters of her hometown and, maybe more impressively, survived over three decades working for the City of Saint Peter! Her readers love that she is so knowledgeable about the small details included in her books and praise her research, but in reality it’s a lifetime of living that forms the basis for much of her writing.
She shares her life, and a lot of times her computer keyboard, with her polydactyl rescue cat Annie. Interesting fact? Discovering her grandmother was a closet writer was so influential in Barbara’s own passion for writing that she honors her grandmother Lillian in each of her books although it may take some doing for readers to discover how that is accomplished!
