Barberi conceived of The Angel Auberon series writing the books and music. The stories of this series are set in the context of angelic legend. The series was begun with publication of the book entitled The Angel Chronicles: The Guardian Angels Books I-V by The Angel Auberon. It is the story of the beginning of human life and of how the assembly of guardian angels was formed to care for all living beings. The book is available at bookstores everywhere and online at Amazon.com. She composed the music for the CD companion to the book, Angel Music. Angel Music is available through Amazon.com.
Her latest book is the novel, Love and Dreams. Set in New York society during a period that spans the last century, the saga of life, love, friendship and dreams is woven into New York's richly textured history and the rituals established by New York's first settlers: the WASP gentry and the German-Jewish aristocracy. While offered for sale at bookstores, including the online bookstores, Love and Dreams is sold at The Museum of the City of New York: The Museum Store.
