The New Zealand Herald reviewer, commenting on the 'quieter, deeper' humour in Barbra's writing, said it is 'found in her dark, sardonic point of skew, in her quirky, wry vignettes that are a fond satire of modern middle class life and those who live it ...' Her first novel, The Warrior Queen, was shortlisted for the Montana New Zealand Book Awards. Her children's fiction has won a host of awards, including a 2012 White Raven Award and the 2012 NZ IBBY for The Travelling Restaurant. She was the Victoria University of Wellington Writer in Residence for 1999, received a Creative New Zealand Scholarship in Letters in 2004, and was made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to literature in 2005.
