Blackville Author Barb Curtis Releases Debut Novel

Local author Barb Curtis’ debut novel, Forever With You, was released in November. The book, thirteen years in the making, is a heartwarming small-town romance about high school sweethearts who return home and discover that first love sometimes gets a second chance.

Forever With You is the first book in the Sapphire Springs series. A followup, Only for You, set to be released later this year, is available for pre-order now.

The Blackville School alumna, daughter of Winston and Loretta Curtis, comes from a family of acclaimed authors. Her uncles Wayne and Herb Curtis are also writers.

A self-described happily-ever-after-crafter at heart, Barb Curtis’ love for writing began with a quick-witted style column, and her background in marketing led to stints writing print and web copy, newsletters, and grant proposals. The switch to fiction came with the decision to pair her creativity with her love for words and crafting characters and settings she could truly get lost in.

Barb lives in her century-old family homestead with her husband and daughter.

Forever With You is available locally at Mill Cove or online.
