Profile Information

About Me:
VR Barkowski was born and raised 90 miles north of Sacramento in a town nestled between California's Sierra Foothills and the state's great Central Valley. A graduate of UC Berkeley and recovering sociologist, she is an avid if not intrepid traveller, a lover of animals, music, museums, glass, pottery, cooking, graveyards, and books—not necessarily in that order.

Winner of the 2012 Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Colorado Gold for Mystery and a finalist for both the 2012 Claymore and the Daphne Du Maurier Awards, VR's short fiction has appeared in Mysterical-E and Spinetingler.

She currently makes her home near Boston.
