Welcome! THE WHISPER OF LEGENDS is here!
Barbara Fradkin is a retired psycholoigist and multiple award-winning mystery author whose work with children and families provides much of the insight and inspiration for her stories. She has an affinity for the dark side and her compelling short stories haunt several magazines and anthologies, including the Ladies' Killing Circle series.
However, she is best known for her gritty, psychological detective novels, which have twice won the Arthur Ellis Award for Best Novel from Crime Writers of Canada. As well, she recently embarked on an easy-read series for reluctant readers which features simple country handyman Cedric O'Toole.
Feel free to explore these pages for more details and for the latest news on books, events and appearances. Sample some opening chapters. She would love to hear from you if you have comments or questions, so please feel free to contact her.
