Our Mission


"Find a need and fill it." - Ruth Safford Peale

Our mission is simple, just like the quote above from Ruth Safford Peale, we find a need and we fill it. 

There are so many amazing charity organizations out there that need our help so that they are able to help others. That's why we created CMBS Charitable Collaborations. We take our passion for helping others and mix it with our love of writing to create collections of stories that people love. All the money raised from the sale of those books, are donated to different organizations across the country to help the less fortunate, our veterans, animals and children. 

We’ve only just begun, and we’ve already raised $520 that went to a very deserving charity! We will continue to seek out and support these amazing organizations and we hope you will as well. 

Even if we had only ever raised enough to help one person, family, animal; That would be one less hungry child, one less homeless vet, one less animal being abused.

You may think you can't afford to donate but even a dollar makes a difference.

Barb is a Carolina Girl by right and a Texan by birth. By day she’s a desk jockey for a rural transportation company and a book lover -  reading through as many books as she can. At night, though, she turns into alter ego, a writer. Cape, optional, depending on her mood.

Her stories are a mix of real life events, personal experiences and the craziness of her own imagination, and the imaginations of her best friends. And then imaginations together, it can be crazy. Barb writes in multiple genres, encounters new adventures, creates new worlds and has a fantastic time breathing life into new stories. Creating something she hopes inspires anyone who reads to fall in love with them as she has.

Barb lives by one little rule, tomorrow is never guaranteed so make sure you live each day to its fullest.
