More About the Author

Barbara Ebel is a physician-turned author who sprinkles credible medicine into the background of her plots, but her characters and plots take center stage. Since she practiced as an anesthesiologist, her work shines when it comes to operating room scenes.

Novelist Ebel's first novel, Operation Neurosurgeon: You never know...who's in the OR is about the rise and fall of a fictional neurosurgeon in Nashville, TN. Her newest novel, Outcome, A Novel: There's more than a hurricane coming... delves into multiple characters from Indiana to Peru whose lives get entangled after a monstrous storm, including the protagonist's heartwarming dog who escapes the crushed metal pile into the blowing sand and gusty winds.

Besides writing her adult novels, "Doctor Barbara," works her own trained therapy dog and was encouraged to write him into a children's book. The project culminated in her penning and illustrating three children's books using real pictures of her dogs called Chester the Chesapeake. The dog is used as the template to inspire good behavior in children.

Although novelist Ebel has lived up and down the U.S.east coast, she now resides with her husband and pets in a protected wildlife corridor in Tennessee. "Perfect for writing," she says. She believes her head is crammed with material from her varied background just waiting to be put down.

Teaching compassion and kindness 19 Feb. 2009
By H. Foss - Published on
Format: Paperback
My three year old daughter loves this book! As she has a dog of her own, she can really relate to the story about learning, compassion and kindness. She brought the book to her preschool one day to share with her class - it was a huge hit as kids can relate to animals so well. I love the personal touch given to the book by the author Barbara Ebel. It is lovely all around and would be a welcome addition to any child's book collection!

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed reading this book to my grandkids. The pictures are cute and the comments are quite wry. Using photographs makes this story more "real" for children, and the gentle lessons put forth are a great inspiration for discussion.

Wonderful books 1,2,& 3 of Chester the Chesapeake shared with My Great-grandchildren 5 Dec. 2012
By BB - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Barbara Ebel is a favorite writter of mine, my grt.grands children, plus the 85 yr.old with bone cancer who lives with me known as Gram. Ebel's photography of the dogs and the surrounding areas taken, gave me hours of teaching lessons with my greatgrands who are 2yrs. to 7yrs. old, and learning about responsibilities of having pets. Where dogs and watersaefty can be fun, but also learning how there could be possibilities of saving a life, or fetching Agility toys. We discussed how proper grooming of these great dogs is a daily responsibility. The little stories each could make up as we went from page to page has given alot of self- confidence to a couple of shy ones in my family. Teaching them how to use and respect the Amazon Kindle,with these beautiful dogsphotos has led to them wanting to read more, and order new books to spend time with Granny. BB

By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Chester the Chesapeake was a cute and adorable story! The author utilizes the prospective of her dog Chester to teach children and adults life's valuable of following directions, learning to grow and continue learning, that sharing and making new friends is fun and well worth the effort and that by learning and growing you can prosper and grow to help others and yourself. Chester is a great role model and I can't wait to see what other lessons can be learned from him! I highly recommend this book and series to anyone!
