Start a Barbara Comfort Discussion today about the author, her life, her hobbies, her painting and even her writings. We want to hear from her fans who have read her books, would like to share a story about her with her fans, and especially we would like to share your fan fiction. It doesn’t take but a few minutes to post a comment below about a particular character you liked or didn’t like, a story line you would have liked some of the characters to have been involved in. The sky is the limit so long as the discussions center around Barbara Comfort, her books and her characters.

Fall Colors Are Great

Autumn LeafFall colors are great and they are plentiful in Vermont. One of the smallest states in the union has produced some of the most amazing things. From syrup, great works of art and our favorite fiction. Some facts about Vermont from WIKI: Population 626,000; 9620 sq mi; 80 miles wide by 160 miles long; and only 14 counties. Dairy Farming is falling but still fairly big. Captive Insurance is playing a large role in Vermont’s economy. Tourism is a major source of income. A major exporter of maple syrup. Major employers are IBM, Fletcher Allen Health Care and various Vermont Government agencies.

Ms. Barbara Comfort wrote quite a few stories set in her home state that entertained us for years. Her books are slowly disappearing from bookstores and online so you may have trouble getting copies of her stories to read. Of course, you cannot get even one of her books on Amazon Kindle or Barnes and Noble eBooks. This is a terrible thing. All of her fans would like to be able to buy her entire collection of books online just like any other. If her fans want to sign a petition to her former publishers to get all of her books in eBook format we can do it. We are still looking for Fan Fiction, Fan Art, Tish McWhinny Crosswords, Liz Bell Crosswords, search-a-words, etc. Just go to our CONTACT US page and drop us a line.

We are so sad to hear that Barbara Comfort has passed away last month at the age of 95. We will miss her writing. We encourage all of her fans to go to the Legacy.com obituary page and sign the Guestbook. Here is the link: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/nytimes/obituary.aspx?n=barbara-comfort&pid=157339145. We have added the article from the Times on the ABOUT page.

We will keep this website going in honor of our favorite author. Keep coming back. Over the next couple of months we hope you will send us your suggestions on some articles we could write, story suggestions for our favorite Tish McWhinney characters or anything that comes to mind in keeping with the theme of this Fan Page.


Message From Kingdom Books

Below is a message I received from David Kanell, a bookstore owner in Vermont that has some great news for fans of Barbara Comfort. Contact him directly if you would be interested in a Spiral-bound Scrap Book written by and about Barbara herself. Maybe with enough interested fans we may be able to get a reprint offered!

Updates for the Fans

Hello, everyone we have finally finished with the site but could use some help filling in a few blanks.  As you go through the site you will notice that there are some gaps here and there that I am counting on my fellow fans to fill in.  I haven’t read all of Barbara Comfort’s books yet and am having problems finding some of the books so I haven’t had a chance to get some informative info on all the books yet.  Under the booklist tab are two pages one for Liz Bell and the other for Tish McWhinney.  So use the contact page and send in your own book synopsis and we will post them for all of the fans.

Keep Reading and we look forward to hearing from you.  And thanks so much to Beth Kanell who wrote the About page article and sent in the picture of Barbara Comfort!
