Welcome to the official web site of author Barbara LeBey.

Barbara LeBey’s books focus on family relationships and how to make them work. Her current book ReMarried with Children: Ten Secrets for Successfully Blending and Extending Your Family addresses the problems of stepparents, particularly those of the stepmother, fade-out fathers, ex-spouses, grandparents, as well as addressing legal and financial issues pertinent to blended families.  She draws on extensive interviews and new research to help stepparents, parents, and their children navigate the most common problems for stepfamilies: unreasonable expectations, divided loyalties and guilt.
The response to her first book, Family Estrangements, has been wonderful, and clearly demonstrated the need for guidance in this troublesome area of family life.
Barbara LeBey is a lawyer, former judge, and wife, mother and grandmother.  Her heartfelt and honest advice is offered to ordinary people who must face the complexities of family life every day.
