Barbara Burgess was born at Eastbourne, Sussex. Her Great Uncle who lived in Massachusetts was a published poet as was her cousin Anthony who also lived at Eastbourne.
Barbara is a psychic medium, songwriter, poet, and author and artist.
Barbara has been writing since she was first able to hold a pencil. She loved English lessons at school and wrote her first poem for a school end of year competition. It was about her Whippet.
Barbara had several poems published in the local Luton Newspapers and regularly writes poetry generally about everyday life.
It was not until 2019 that Barbara wrote her first song which was triggered by a day trip to a park with the Grandchildren where they went on a miniature railway ride. “Train to Nowhere” came into being.
A friend of Barbara set her a challenge for her second song, “I Woke Up One Morning”.
Another friend told her about The U K Songwriting Contest which she entered in 2020 and got some excellent star ratings for her first attempts and this spurred her on.
In 2021 and 2022 and 2023 some of her entries gained semi finals status. She is now waiting to see if any of her songs gained final status.
Update - 2023 song in the finals!
Barbara continues to regularly write songs, poems and books and enter them into competitions. Barbara is also a creative artist.
Barbara is also learning to play the piano. She first had lessons while still at school but her nerves got the better of her when she was asked to take an exam and she stopped going for lessons.
