Literary Treasure Hunter
Barbara Taylor Sissel writes issues-driven, relationship-rich fiction. Her illuminating book reviews here on BoxOcto go beyond the usual college-ruled book report to reveal a gift that awaits the reader in each book she talks about.
She has written extensively for the public relations profession and her articles have appeared in a variety of design magazines and newspapers, most notably, the Houston Chronicle and the Conroe Courier. She is the author of the short story, Real, that was included in the 2007 edition of Windhover, an anthology of short stories published by Mary Hardin Baylor University Press.
In addition, drawing from her own years of experience, she has assisted other writers in their efforts to secure agent representation, advising them in every aspect from finding the right market to composing query letters that work, to organizing a tracking system to handle responses, follow-up letters, and submission requests. She is presently writing a new novel and pursuing markets for her work.
