About the author:

Barbara Barnett is co-executive editor of Blogcritics, an Internet magazine of pop culture, politics and more owned by Technorati Media. Always a pop-culture geek, Barnett was raised on a steady diet of TV (and TV dinners), but she always found her way to TV’s antiheroes and misunderstood champions, whether on TV, in the movies or in literature, including âœHouse, M.D.â

Barnett has had an eclectic career. With an undergraduate degree in biology and minors in chemistry and English, she pursued a Ph.D. in Public Policy Analysis after spending a few years working in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. After many years as a public affairs consultant, Barbara made a sharp left turn in her career path, becoming a Jewish educator, but the writer in her never took a back seat, creating several noted and award-winning publications along the way. She is a polished and popular speaker on such diverse topics as liturgy, being a âœgood person,â religious pluralism, politics, the environment and the nature of medicine and pop culture…and, of course House, M.D.

She is married and the mom of two great kids, an aged dog and a rabbit. Follow her on Twitter or visit her on Facebook.
