Short biography
Barbara Fradkin (nee Currie) was born in Montreal and obtained her B.A. at McGill University and M.A. at the University of Toronto, before moving to Ottawa to work and raise a family. A few years later she returned to the University of Ottawa for her PhD in clinical psychology, and has recently scaled back her full-time practice as a child psychologist in order to devote more time to her first passion, writing.

Although she first appeared in print only twelve years ago, Barbara has been writing since she was six and has always had an affinity for the dark side. Her work as a child psychologist provides ample insight and inspiration for murderous plots. An active member of Canada's writing community, she is the past president of Crime Writers of Canada and Capital Crime Writers, an Ottawa mystery writers' group, as well as contributing to Sisters in Crime She has three children, two dogs and a cat, and in whatever spare time she can find, she loves outdoor activities like travelling, skiing and kayaking, as well as reading, of course.
