Barbara Linn Probst is a writer of both fiction and non-fiction, living on an historic dirt road in New York’s Hudson Valley. Her debut novel Queen of the Owls (April 2020) is the powerful story of a woman’s search for wholeness, framed around the art and life of iconic American painter Georgia O’Keeffe. Endorsed by best-selling authors such as Christina Baker Kline and Caroline Leavitt, Queen of the Owls was selected as one of the 20 most anticipated books of 2020 by Working Mother, one of the best Spring fiction books by Parade Magazine, and a debut novel “too good to ignore” by Bustle. It was also featured in lists compiled by Pop Sugar and Entertainment Weekly, among others, and featured in Ms. Magazine. It won the bronze medal for popular fiction from the Independent Publishers Association, placed first runner-up in general fiction for the Eric Hoffer Award, and was short-listed for both the First Horizon and the $2500 Grand Prize. Like Queen of the Owls, The Sound Between the Notes (April 2021) shows how art can help us to be more fully human.
Barbara has a PhD in clinical social work and is the author of the ground-breaking book for parents of out-of-the-box kids, When the Labels Don’t Fit. An out-of-the-box child herself, Barbara is a former therapist, researcher, teacher, advocate, and traveler to odd places, as well as a “serious amateur” pianist.
