Evans, Stanley

Stanley Evans

Stanley Evans has been a soldier, a surveyor, and a deep-sea fisherman. He once spent several months travelling up and down the Amazon River and its tributaries. He lives in Victoria, B.C.

Evans's sixth crime novel, Seaweed on the Rocks, featuring Coast Salish Aboriginal detective Silas Seaweed, was published in September 2008, and the seventh, Seaweed in the Soup, was published in September 2009.  

Seaweed under Water won Monday Magazine's Best Novel of 2007 award. Evans's previous novels in the Seaweed series are Seaweed on Ice and Seaweed on the Street.

Evans's novels in the Sergeant Decker, series, featuring a BC frontier lawman, are Outlaw Gold and Snow-Coming Moon.

Praise for the Seaweed novels:  

"Seaweed on the Rocks is as uniquely Canadian as a painting by Emily Carr. Evans deftly wraps his tale in a richly evocative portrait of native lore...reminiscent of Raymond Chandler (and) the late Tony Hillerman." – Sherbrook Record.

The writing is wonderful native storytelling. Characters are richly drawn...I enjoyed this so much that I'm looking for the others in the series." – Hamilton Spectator         

"West Coast detective Silas Seaweed....Evans' combination of Salish lore and solid plotting is a winner." – Globe and Mail

Fradkin, Barbara

Barbara FradkinBarbara Fradkin

Barbara Fradkin (n,e Currie) was born in Montreal and attended McGill and the Universities of Toronto and Ottawa, where she obtained her PhD in clinical psychology. Her work as a child psychologist provides ample inspiration for plotting murders, and she recently retired from practice to spend more time with her pen and her fertile imagination.

Her dark short stories haunt numerous magazines and anthologies, including Storyteller Magazine, and the Ladies Killing Circle and New Canadian Noir anthologies. However, she is best known for her award-winning detective series, featuring the exasperating, quixotic Ottawa Police Inspector Michael Green whose passion for justice and love of the hunt often interferes with family, friends, and police protocol.

An active member of Canada's writing community, Barbara served as president of Crime Writers of Canada (20042005). She lives in Ottawa and is currently working on the seventh novel in the Inspector Green series.
