2013 Tales Books Productions: “Best Researched Short Story”


T his haunting short-story features the legendary Rosetta Duccini Davie. Raven-haired, red-lipped “Rose” was the seductive madam of the most elegant brothel on Two-Bit Street in the mid 1940's: The Rose Rooms.

Rose's kindness, in spite of her chosen profession, produced a lasting impression.
A good deed performed by her is treasured by the recipient who over the years enshrined the recollection and instilled it in the mind of her young grandson.

Now in his twenties, he is drawn to present-day 205 ½ 25th Street searching for a remnant of the woman he was taught to idolize. Within the ruins of the once affluent Rose Rooms, he'll have a paranormal encounter with Rose herself, a couple of decades after her death.
