Bari Lynn Hein’s debut novels, THEY DID(N’T) DANCE and CHR☮NICLE, are currently on submission to publishing houses. Her short story “Skyscrapers” is a runner-up in The Saturday Evening Post’s Great American Fiction Contest, 2018. Her short story “A Faint, Cautionary Creee” placed first in daCunha Global’s “Made Up Words” competition, 2016.

She lives and works in the D.C. Metropolitan area, but her mind takes daily excursions to the settings of her stories. Lately she’s been spending a lot of time in a Russian shtetl at the turn of the twentieth century, while she works on her fifth novel.

She and her husband, artist Gregory Hein, are the parents of two creative adults. All photos on this website, with the exception of the beautiful scene illustrating RINASCITA, are from Ms. Hein’s personal collection.
