Barbara Wolcott About Barbara Wolcott

Barbara Wolcott is a late bloomer. After raising six children, she followed her youngest daughter to California State University— Fullerton, earning a degree in Communications in 1986. Wolcott first wrote travel articles for magazines and newspapers until a camping story about a lake resort turned into a technological treatise on a massive, one hundred year old hydroelectric project in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains. Two national magazines published that article, one as a cover feature.

As a freelance writer since 1996, her work has been published well over a hundred times in a variety of national and international periodicals, journals and books, with reprints used in classroom curriculum/adjunct reading for engineers at USC, Syracuse, University of Pennsylvania and Rose-Hulman, and including the MBA program at Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.
