They said the Mallen wickedness was depicted by the white streak in black hair. Through the generations, bad luck and misfortune has befallen each and every member of the Mallen family. It is said that they are cursed by the dramatic white streak in their jet-black hair. Stunningly beautiful and yet desperately unhappy, Barbara does not have the visible streak to identify her as a Mallen. But she knows that the Mallen wickedness is inside her and she is terrified by what it might lead her to do. Her fears are not unfounded.

She continued to write almost up to her death in 1998.
