Barbara Fradkin (nee Currie), an award-winning Canadian mystery writer and retired psychologist whose work with children and families provides ample inspiration for murder. She is fascinated by the dark side and by the desperate choices people make.

Her novels are gritty, realistic, and psychological, with a blend of mystery and suspense. She is the author of three series, including ten novels featuring the exasperating, quixotic Ottawa Police Inspector Michael Green, and three short novels about country handyman Cedric O'Toole which provide an entertaining but quick and easy read. FIRE IN THE STARS is the first book in her new mystery thriller series which stars passionate, adventurous, but traumatized aid worker Amanda Doucette.

Yes, there will be from him in a couple of years. Right now I am taking a break to write a new mystery thriller series featuring an international aid worker, Amanda Doucette. The series is set in Canada, and I just launched the first one, FIRE IN THE STARS, yesterday evening. I'm really excited about the series, so if you haven't given her a try, I hope you will! Happy reading, Barbara(less)

The book, Unloaded...
