Barbara Latta writes a monthly column in her local newspaper, The Pike Journal-Reporter, and is the Membership Director for the East Metro Atlanta Christian Writers in Covington, Georgia. She and her husband enjoy riding motorcycles and her blog, Navigating Life’s Curves, was birthed from riding adventures she uses to compare life’s journey to obstacles in the road.

A transplanted Georgian, Barbara grew up in Arkansas, 25 miles from the only diamond mine in North America. Being a true southerner, she loves fried green tomatoes, sweet tea, and hot weather. She and her husband live with their two dogs, Buster and Peanut who keep the empty nest from feeling too lonely. They have two adult sons, a daughter-in-law and one granddaughter.
