Barbara Greig was born in Sunderland and lived in Roker until her family moved to Teesdale when she was eight. A voracious reader, she also discovered the joy of history at an early age. A last-minute change of heart, in the sixth form, caused her to alter her university application form. Instead of English, Barbara read Modern and Ancient History at Sheffield University. It was a decision she never regretted. After a P.G.C.E. she taught in secondary schools before taking a break to raise a family.

On returning to education, Barbara worked for twenty years in sixth form colleges, teaching History and Classical Civilisation. Eventually, although enjoying a role in management, she found there was less time for teaching and historical study. A change of focus was required. With her children having flown the nest, she was able to pursue her love of writing and story-telling.

Barbara lives with her husband, Mike, on the edge of the North York Moors. She has a passion for hiking, and dancing, the perfect antidotes to long hours of historical research and writing, as well as for travel and, wherever possible, she walks in the footsteps of her characters.
