Barbara Delinsky Profile Picture

Barbara Delinsky was born Barbara Ruth Greenberg in 1945 near Boston, Massachusetts. She earned a B.A. in Psychology from Tufts University and an M.A. in Sociology at Boston College. Following graduate school, she was a researcher for the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. Delinsky also worked as a photographer and reporter for the Belmont Herald and discovered she enjoyed writing more than picture-taking. After reading a newspaper article about female novelists, she decided to try writing a book herself. Three months later, Delinsky sold her first book, and since then, millions of copies of her bestselling novels have been published. In 2001, Delinsky wrote her first non-fiction work, Uplift: Secrets from the Sisterhood of Breast Cancer Survivors. Her profits from the book fund an ongoing research fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital. Delinsky lives in Newton, Massachusetts.
