Angels in the OR

Tricia Barker

A life-altering car accident and an act of violence abroad are mileposts along the road in one woman’s courageous path to well-being in the true story ANGELS IN THE O.R.

Tricia Barker was a depressed, agnostic college student at The University of Texas at Austin until a profound near-death experience during surgery revolutionized her entire world. As she learns to walk again, Tricia lets go of painful wounds from childhood and integrates some of the aftereffects of her spiritual journey into her daily life. She returns to college with renewed vigor, intending to embark on a new path by becoming an English teacher. 

But after a year of teaching in the US, Tricia travels to South Korea, where she is the victim of a sexual assault. Now, she must use the wisdom she gained on the Other Side to heal herself; and later, guide countless junior high, high school, and college students to greater peace. 

Through teaching and mentoring others—many of whom are struggling with traumas of their own—Tricia decides to devote her life to bringing the “light” she experienced during her near-death experience to individuals who are seeking solace, inspiration, and overall well-being. 


Tricia is a graduate of The University of Texas. She also received her MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard College. Currently she teaches English and Creative Writing at a beautiful community college in Fort Worth, Texas. She interviews other near-death experiencers, researchers, healers, and mediums on her YouTube Channel. Tricia’s poetry and essays have been published in several publications including The Binnacle, Paterson Literary Review, and The Midwest Quarterly.
