About Barbara Hurwitz, Acclaimed Indie Author

Barbara Schilling Hurwitz – Indie Author

Barbara Schilling Hurwitz is a veteran English teacher and academic coach who has found a new voice through creative writing. Her first YA novel, Pandu, has been well received by readers of all ages. She is currently working on her second novel, The Memory Keeper’s Secret. She also writes short stories and won a prize for her story “The Return,” published in Montgomery Magazine.

Her first hand knowledge of the rigors associated with the NYC High School admissions process led her to write a user-friendly workbook to help guide students through the arduous process. She also wrote a similar guide for Washington, DC students applying to private high schools. Both workbooks have received accolades from students, parents and teachers.

When she is not writing, Barbara enjoys reading, crafts and visiting with her children and grandchildren. She lives in Bethesda, Maryland with her husband.
