Fbi Corners Novelist, Who Stabs Herself

Nearly two years after she vanished while awaiting sentencing for a New York art and jewelry heist, a romance novelist was arrested Friday after stabbing herself when cornered by the FBI.

Barbara R. Joslyn, 48, stabbed herself three times after FBI agents found her in a Century City motel earlier this week, New York police said. She was being guarded by a police officer as she recuperated at a hospital that Los Angeles authorities would not identify.

Los Angeles police spokeswoman Helen Lloyd described Joslyn’s condition as stable. There was no bail, Lloyd said.

Paramedics treated her for stab wounds to the chest.

Joslyn, originally from West Hollywood, wrote the romance novels “Strange Sins” and “Private Dancers.”
