Barbara Unkovic Biography:

I am of Croatian and English descent and a cousin to DH Lawrence.  I am the author of thirteen published books and the recipient of forty writing awards in the UK, Ireland, Finland and the USA.

I hold a Master of Creative Writing (hons) from the University of Auckland in New Zealand and have extensive training in manuscript assessment, proofreading and copy-editing.

I write in several different genres and I run workshops in the art of writing flash fiction. My latest was for a group of editors from CIEP in central London.
