Barbara Davenport

Barbara Davenport has been following Reality Changers for three years, and and first wrote about them in a cover story for the Reader, http://www.sandiegoreader.com/news/2008/dec/23/cover/ . Now she’s hip-deep in writing a book about them.

She’s written for San Diego alt weeklies Citybeat and the Reader, for Stanford’s and the University of San Diego’s alumni magazines, and back when they did book reviews she reviewed nonfiction for the San Diego Union-Tribune .

Her book The Worst Loss, How Families Heal from the Death of a Child (Henry Holt 1994, written as Barbara Rosof) remains in print, and is praised by professionals and parents as one of the best books written on this difficult topic. It’s been translated into German, Dutch, and Japanese.

She lives and grows pretty good vegetables in Normal Heights.
