Barbara Pronin


A former journalist and news editor, Barbara Pronin is the author of six adult mysteries - three as Barbara Pronin and three as Barbara Nickolae - and two non-fiction books as well as hundreds of magazine articles and executive speeches.

Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., and a graduate of CSULA, she began writing stories at the age of eight, but took turns as an actress, a probation officer, and a substitute teacher before settling down in front of her computer full-time.

A contributing editor to a national real estate magazine, when she isn't writing, Barbara loves music, dark chocolate, Dodgers baseball, and rediscovering the world through the eyes of her grandchildren.

Although mysteries have been her forte - "The Miner's Canary" launches in October 2022 - the Orange County resident is currently at work on a World War II historical novel that has her sitting on the edge of her own seat.
