Rebecca Barrett writes historical fiction, romantic mysteries, post-apocalyptic fiction (writing as Campbell O’Neal), children’s stories, and short stories of life in the South. An avid reader all her life and a product of “front porch” socializing, she became a story-teller at an early age.

Currently Rebecca is writing a detective series set in the deep South of the sixties featuring Hugo August, a Vietnam veteran, as her protagonist. The first book, The Rat Catcher, is available through the serialization platform Amazon Vella. The second book in the series, She Had To Die, is taking shape as our intrepid author rocks out to the great music of the sixties and delves into the good vibes, high times, and social unrest of that era.

Beware The Eye

The Aging Lothario

The Aging Lothario hangs out in the coffee bar, surrounded by older men he tolerates as the young women flitting in and out with their seventies sunglasses, stacked shoes, and short shorts ignore him. They stand at the bar flipping long locks of hair over their shoulders, intent on talking over each other in their need to be the center of attention.

He listens to his companions wi

“There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.”
Joseph Brodsky

Dorothy Parker
Résumé
Razors pain you,
Rivers are damp,
Acids stain you,
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful,
Nooses give,
Gas smells awful.
You might as well live.”
Dorothy Parker, Enough Rope

“This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force.”
Sid Ziff

Rebecca Barrett Just finished The Tale of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski. This is a powerful story of good and evil. The writer weaves all the elements of the tale into the fabric of the story so that even though the ending is unexpected, it is there, slowly building to a heart wrenching conclusion. This is a story that will stay with you for a long time.
