Burr  The clanging chimes from her electronic doorbell nearly gave Helen a heart attack. “Why did I let Nella convince me to install that dreadful robot?” she grumbled as she set her coffee mug down on the spotless kitchen counter.

By Connie Berry The September meeting of the Page Turners had been a massive waste of time. Helen Hornsby tossed the library book into her tote bag. She’d suffered through plenty of mind-numbing book reports in her thirty-two years of teaching middle school curriculum, but tonight took the cake. On a list of the most tedious books ever written, All Aboard! My Life in Model Railroading had to be right at the top. This was a book club, for Pete’s sake, not a convention of hobbyists, but that was Philip Seaforth for you—the most enthusiastically boring man on the face of the planet. The so-called ..read more

Introduction By Martha Reed Genesis “Broken Hearted Killers,” the novella you’re about to read, spontaneously generated. After nearly two years of COVID-19 isolation, a group of Writers Who Kill (“WWK”) authors met in the lobby of the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center to celebrate Malice Domestic 32-33-34, to meet face-to-face again, get re-acquainted, and to take a long overdue blogging group photo. While we gathered, Rosalie Spielman and I chatted. We both agreed how great it felt to reconnect with people in-person. We remarked on the amount of pure writing talent that wa ..read more

In my early teens, I communicated with my friends on a curly corded push-button phone that hung on the kitchen wall. I conducted research for my junior high essays using my library card or an outdated set of encyclopedias my mother had purchased on an installment plan. I took notes with a Papermate ballpoint pen (blue ink for me) on wide-lined looseleaf notebook paper, and I compiled those notes in a three-ring binder. For entertainment, I watched a small screen on our enormous combo TV/stereo. Back then, we had to walk from the couch to the TV and twist the knob if we wanted to change the c ..read more

I love museums. They are everywhere, endlessly fascinating, and full of cool things, including writing ideas. Take Morris Hirshfield Rediscovered, an exhibit currently on view at the American Folk Art Museum in New York. Hirshfield was a self-taught artist who only started painting after retiring at 65 from a career in the garment industry. He won acclaim from the influential gallerist Peggy Guggenheim and her Surrealist artist husband and friends. The founding director of the Museum of Modern Art even gave him a solo show. Critical reception was harsh, however, one reviewer dismissing Hirshfi ..read more

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen my name attached to anything beyond blog posts. So long that I was beginning to wonder if I was a writer or a wannabe. Scary thought, that. I mean, if I wasn’t a writer who was I? Don’t answer. That’s exactly what I was afraid of. So, I am pleased and grateful to announce that good news on the publication front is afoot. January and February bring a bumper crop of publications and some of these efforts come with a learning curve.   Death by Blue Water, a novel originally released by Henery Press, is re-released in Kindle form on Amazon. My rights rev ..read more

It is humbling to examine examples and to remember our own lapses such as the ones noted below. Al Gore, when Vice President, attended a meeting with Asian-American business people in 1993 that was later criticized as possibly encouraging future campaign contributions from non-citizens. His reaction included the statements, “I did nothing wrong” and “I will not do it ..read more

The Imposter Syndrome by Connie Berry

  Almost every author I know has it—the feeling, deep down, that whatever success they’ve achieved in their writing career won’t last; that the book they’re working on now will never come together; and that their next book will never be as good as their last one. In every book I’ve written, there has come a time (usually late at night in the dark) when I think, “Nope. This time I can’t pull it off. I’ve written myself into a corner. I’ll have to give up.” Fortunately (so far), I haven’t given up. I’ve soldiered on, counting on my unconscious, creative brain to offer suggestions, fill in ..read more

Some folks make New Year’s Day resolutions. I start earlier, in the week after the holidays but before the New Year begins. I like sitting down in a quiet space with a nice cup of coffee or a sweet milky mug of Earl Gray or Constant Comment tea and having a good think. The trick is to absolutely refuse to dwell on anything negative even to the point of silencing the steadfast inner critic’s voice in my head. I purposefully dwell on writerly achievements since being a writer is my life’s mission statement. I distinctly recall my first newbie foray in my writer’s life almost twenty years ago whe ..read more
