About Barbara Stensland

Since 2012, Barbara has written a blog about her life with MS, her son, who she refers to as The Teenager who is now at University, and anything else that randomly popped into her mind.

She recently completed an MA in Creative Writing at Cardiff Metropolitan University and has decided to put herself through the trauma and sleepless nights once more, this time embarking upon a PhD in the same subject.

Her book, ‘Stumbling In Flats’ was short-listed for the International Rubery Book Award 2015 and her Master’s dissertation novella was short-listed for the 2017 Exeter Story Prize.
