How far would you go to find a child that never existed?
Elizabeth Walker awakens in a mental institution, the aftermath of a nightmare in her veins. All she can think of is saving a little boy—her son. But the orderlies who rush in and jab her with needles assure her she has no son. So does her mother, who demands her doctors keep her calm and prevent her from these troubling delusions. But Elizabeth’s nightmares are so real, and her arms still feel the memory of holding her son. And her instincts tell her to trust no one. Her child is gone. Her memories are gone. Everything is just…gone.
Ex-military medic David Kerrigan will never stop blaming himself for the childhood tragedy that took his younger sister’s life. As a doctor on staff at the hospital, he’s drawn to Elizabeth, and he’s not sure that everything about her case is on the up and up. David knows full well he can’t change the past, but what if he can save this one person? And maybe helping Elizabeth might just save them both…

Hi Barb. Thanks for visiting with me about your new release, Gone. The character David Kerrigan from Gone seems like a hero to me. Who do you consider a real-life hero or heroine?
There are so many real-life heroes and heroines. I’d say men and women who serve in the military are right up there in my book. First responders, firefighters, police, nurses top the list too. Anyone who puts their life on the line for someone else or is there at the precise moment we need them, trying to save our lives rates as heroic to me.
Elizabeth Walker wakes up in a mental institution. That's pretty scary stuff. What's the scariest event you've experienced?
Thank heaven I haven’t experienced anything as scary as waking in a mental institution. The story came to me in a nightmare and I was her. Living the experience through her eyes was enough to keep me awake for days. I checked on my kids during the night, and actually watched over them while they slept for weeks after.
Can you tell us an insider tip from the book? Maybe a scene you cut or something that didn't make it to the page?
There’s a scene I wish I could share, but it would give away the ending. Let’s just say I rewrote the ending half a dozen times before it felt right.
Complete this phrase: If you like emotionally-intense stories with a HEA, you'll be crazy about Gone.
I see all these sports photos on your blog--skiing and rock climbing. So, take me somewhere for an outdoor activity. When and where would we go for fun?
I like this question. I’d most likely take you to Boulder, Colorado. We’d rent bikes (it’s so bike friendly there, I love it) and ride to Pearl Street Mall where we’d eat before our hike. There’s a cart called Fast Eddie's World Famous Chicago Hot Dogs that I love. It’s near the visitor’s center. After we fill our tummies and enjoy a little street entertainment (maybe even have our fortunes told), we’d head to Chautauqua grounds (the mountain base), park our bikes, and hike the Flatirons. The crazy part is you can experience four seasons of weather on the same hike. We’d call it a day by biking back down to Pearl Street Mall where we’d start off with a bowl of buffalo soup at Boulder Cafe. Good food. Good company. Now that’s a good day!
