Catholic Reads is excited to bring author Barbara Kudwa onto the team as our new Non-Fiction Editor!

Barbara Kudwa comes from a large catholic family and wouldn’t have it any other way! She is a retired Financial Advisor, enjoying her grandchildren, ministries, travel and sporting activities. Barbara never dreamed of becoming an author, but God intertwined others to help her so she could follow His Will. One of her favorite sayings is, “The Will of God will never take you where the grace of God will not protect you.” Barbara Kudwa wrote a non-fiction memoir and became a keynote speaker, helping others heal from their brokenness. Barbara offers part of her profits from the sale of books to help non-profit groups. Some nights you can find her curled up to a nice warm fire watching her favorite movie, The Notebook. She eagerly waits to read your next book.
