Barbara McNichol

Purple Nickel

A specialist in editing nonfiction books, Barbara has been on a crusade to boost the quality of writing for authors and business professionals through her writing WordShops. Over the past 25 years, she has placed more than 350 books on her editor’s “trophy shelf” in the categories of business, relationships, how-to, self-help, spirituality, and more. A book she edited reached #3 on New York Times best-seller list, Robert Shemin’s How Come That Idiot’s Rich and I’m Not?

From Saskatchewan (can you spell it?), Barbara has called Tucson home since 2001. She loves to dance Nia-style, play tennis, travel with family and friends, and soak in the rays of Arizona’s sunshine.
