I was born and raised in suburban Boston My mother s death, when I was eight, was the defining event of a childhood that was otherwise ordinary I took piano lessons and flute lessons I took ballroom dancing lessons I went to summer camp through my fifteenth year in Maine, which explains the setting of so many of my stories , then spent my sixteenth summer learning to type and to drive two skills that have served me better than all of my other high school courses combined I earned a B.A in Psychology at Tufts University and an M.A in Sociology at Boston College The motivation behind the M.A was sheer greed My husband was just starting law school We needed the money Following graduate school, I worked as a researcher with the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, and as a photographer and reporter for the Belmont Herald I did the newspaper work after my first son was born Since I was heavily into taking pictures of him, I worked for the paper to support that habit Initially, I wrote only in a secondary capacity, to provide copy for the pictures I took In time, I realized that I was better at writing than photography I used both skills doing volunteer work for hospital groups, and have served on the Board of Directors of the Friends of the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center and on the MGH s Women s Cancer Advisory Board I became an actual writer by fluke My twins were four when, by chance, I happened on a newspaper article profiling three female writers Intrigued, I spent three months researching, plotting, and writing my own book and it sold My niche I write about the emotional crises that we face in our lives Readers identify with my characters They know them They are them I m an everyday woman writing about everyday people facing not so everyday challenges My novels are character driven studies of marriage, parenthood, sibling rivalry, and friendship, and I ve been blessed in having readers who buy them eagerly enough to put them on the major bestseller lists One of my latest, Sweet Salt Air, came out in 2013 Blueprints, my second novel with St Martin s Press, became my 22nd New York Times bestselling novel soon after its release in June 2015 Making Up, my work in progress, will be published in 2018.2018 Yikes I didn t think I d live that long I thought I d die of breast cancer back in the 1900 s, like my mom But I didn t I was diagnosed nearly twenty years ago, had surgery and treatment, and here I am, stronger than ever and loving having authored yet another book, this one the non fiction Uplift Secrets From the Sisterhood of Breast Cancer Survivors First published in 2001, Uplift is a handbook of practical tips and upbeat anecdotes that I compiled with the help of 350 breast cancer survivors, their families and friends These survivors just blew me away They gave me the book that I wish I d had way back when I was diagnosed There is no medical information here, nothing frightening, simply practical advice from friends who ve had breast cancer The 10th Anniversary Volume of Uplift is now in print And the money I ve made on the book Every cent has gone to my charitable foundation, which funds an ongoing research fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital Connect with me on Facebook facebook bdelinsky Look for my photos on Instagram instagram barbaradelinsky
