My musical roots are with my family's long history as performers. I began my music career by performing in musicals in churches and in school where I participated in plays and singing. My parents provided me with music lessons at a very early age. I continues to sing, play piano and keyboard, writing and recording songs and music. I have posted some of my music, teaching videos and MP3 digital-downloads on Facebook, YouTube, Acid Planet Radio, Indie Music and CD Baby companies. I have posted hundreds of articles on Google, Facebook, Linkedin, Yahoo! and WordPress Websites.
Who I am, allows me to connect with people, from all walks of life and faiths, is credited to spirituality. It is humbling and allows me to know that I am at my best when I treat others the way I would want them to treat me, and to give without expecting to receive something in return. I began studying Theology in my very early adult years. I have come to know that both Medical and Spirituality have a positive profound effect in my career as a writer, musician, health, fitness, and Spiritual Consultant.
I am the author and editor for Barrier's Books & Associates, a book company that my family and I have owned since 2005. I have a special passion for the Medical Profession where I worked for 15 years. My mother was stricken with a stroke during the summer following my high school graduation. She lost her ability to speak and to care for herself. The majority of my mother's care was my responsibility, due to other family members had to work and didn't live nearby, although they provided as much help as possible.
Caring for a stroke victim requires lots of skills and patience. Caring for my mother gave me respect for the Medical Profession and inspired me to enter the profession in my later years. My experience as a Medical Professional includes, Geriatrics, Pediatrics, Orthopedics, Oncology, Urology, Neurology, Psychiatric, and Surgical Technician. I have written several books and hundreds of articles. I credit my experience as author to writing poems and stories in my youthful years. I consider myself to be a 'driven writer' due to my Medical Professional and Spiritual Consultant careers, that have allowed me to intervene with others in their times of medical and spiritual needs. My books are both fiction and nonfiction. My reason for writing this novel was because I felt driven to tell the stories of those individuals whose life stories are horrifying and filled with turmoil.
This novel is based on the life of Priscilla Emerson and her family. Priscilla was a beautiful young woman who graduated from law school, with a promising future in the field of law. However, on the day she became Mrs. Jim Elliott, every one of her dreams were destroyed. Jim Elliott was not an ordinary man. He was possessed with demons, a man without a conscious. But, Priscilla didn't realize this horrible truth about her husband, until it was too late. Jim Elliott was the leader of a corrupt and evil organization, whose purpose was to torture and kill those who they wanted out of society. The price Priscilla and her family paid for the sins Jim Elliott committed in his organization, was called "The Ultimate Price."
"Death is The Inevitable Price We Must Pay," said Antonio Elliott, the son of Jim Elliott.
Those who have read this novel, describes it as "A life story eveyone should read.
Because my husband, George Barrier Sr., has given me 100% support, for this book, I listed him as an author.
