- Author BiographyBarbara Light Lacy is a free spirit, musician, singer/songwriter, novelist and poet living in Dallas, Texas. Her dog is a rescue dog. Her songs range from country/western to Americana. Her books run from cookbooks to novels. (Her poems . . . well, does anyone really ever want to say where their poems come from?) Given parents who were ahead of their time, she was taught that you could be whatever you wanted to be, even if you were a woman. Be whatever you want to be; do whatever you want to do. Just be home by curfew! Since her first road trip at two months old with her musician parents, she knew that there is something to be learned from every person you meet in every place your feet may be. A self-proclaimed old hippie, she survived the Sixties, enjoyed the Seventies, continued through the subsequent decades and still continues to espouse the tenets of peace/love/joy today. From one of her songs - Let your smile be your very best mark, in this world, let your smile be your very best mark.
