A cousin to the esteemed author D.H. Lawrence, Barbara Unković has a flair for literature etched into her DNA.
Born in New Zealand, Barbara is of Croatian descent. Upon visiting the land of her ancestors, Barbara found inspiration on the island of Korčula, the original home of her father's family. The island resonated with her so deeply she began writing her first novel – the award winning Weeds in the Garden of Eden.
Barbara’s Croatian ties run deep into her second novel – ‘A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing’. Released in April this year, A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing delves further into the mysteries Barbara is presented with upon her return to Korčula. Curious? she will be attending The Book Fayre in Parthenay, France on September 28th. See our events page for further information.
