Barb has had a lifelong interest in all kinds of word and number puzzles. As a child, her family all raced to get to the copy of Games Magazine first. As an adult, she was successful at passing some of those interests on to her kids. As an empty-nester, she’s expanding her interests into construction of crossword puzzles. Barb works as an engineer in suburban Philadelphia. Her puzzles have also been published in the Wall Street Journal.
