About the Author

Laura T. Barnes
lives in a converted barn on her farm, Barnesyard, in Hunterdon County, New Jersey.  Many of the farm animals live on the ground floor of the barn while Laura and her husband live in the top floors.  Ideas for the stories and tales stem from day-to-day life watching and loving her animals at Barnesyard.

“I only write my books, the animals create the story.”
