Barbara J. Harrelson developed a literary walking tour of Santa Fe, Storytellers and the Southwest, soon after she moved to that New Mexico center of arts and culture. It is one of the few literary walking tours in the nation. Native to New Mexico, Harrelson is an independent writer whose work has appeared in the Newark Star-Ledger, the Santa Fe New Mexican, The Essential Guide to Santa Fe & Taos, and the Bloomsbury Review.
