One night in October, 1987, as Barbara left the L.A. Improv comedy club, she told
a friend, “I have to go home and get some sleep. I’m telling you there is going to
be an earthquake tomorrow.” She woke the next morning to the Whittier
Earthquake. After three days of aftershocks and 100 plus degree temperatures,
she decided to visit her cousin in Phoenix where at least there was air

During her visit she walked into a now-defunct rock shop in Cave Creek. An old
scruffy man who reminded her of an 1860s miner started following her around
identifying the rocks. Suddenly he told her, “You belong here!” She replied with
aghast, “What do you mean? I’m a comedy writer from LA.” He replied with
persistence, “No you’re not. You’re the Mystic of Cave Creek.” Before Barbara left
the rock shop, she asked the clerk about the old man. The clerk told her she was
certain there hadn’t been a man in the shop all day.

As a child growing up in Chicago, Barbara learned to astral-project to escape the
excruciating pain of a childhood illness undiagnosed until she was 23. Her out-of-
body experiences not only allowed her to exist without pain, they also introduced
her to the psychic world she has come to know intimately.  Barbara’s psychic
experiences and dreams have continued throughout her life and although open to
her gift, she was focused on her professional pursuits in the world of

She went on to co-author and co-produce the San Francisco “Cable Car Award
Winning” rock and roll musical “Breakfast in Marin.” Soon after, Barbara moved to
Hollywood and created a successful niche as a writer, singer, actress, and
comedienne. She appeared in and wrote feature films and television and worked
with the likes of Bette Midler, Dolly Parton and Lily Tomlin.

Despite Barbara’s success, her psychic dreams and experiences continued and
intensified and she was told by world-renowned psychics Kenny Kingston, John
Holland, and Jan Ross that she has a profound gift as a medium.

In 1994 after predicting and living through the Northridge Earthquake, Barbara
accepted her destiny and took an Artist in Residence position with the Desert
Foothills Theater in Cave Creek, Arizona. Her talents as a medium, which she had
put on the back burner, came to the forefront of her life and the word spread.

She currently resides in Cave Creek, Arizona working as a medium full time, has
appeared on the Good Morning Arizona TV show, and by invitation, is a resident
reader at the Desert Foothills Library in Cave Creek, Arizona.
