And Now for a Brief Commercial Message…

My short story “Winter Rental” has just been published in Seasmoke, an anthology of mystery, crime and suspense stories by New England authors.


The introduction to Seasmoke says, “Some stories hold us even though we’re not sure where the crime is or when it will show up.  But we are captured in the first paragraph and held until the end.  Barbara Ross’s story, ‘Winter Rental,’ is one of these.” 

“Winter Rental,” won an honorable mention for the Al Blanchard Award  The award was presented at the conference dinner at Crimebake, an annual mystery writers conference sponsored by the New England Chapters of Mystery Writers of America and Sisters In Crime  The whole experience including the conference, dinner, award and book signing was tremendous fun.
