SORT BY Relevancy
B. Berry has created some amazing characters in Clothesline Blues. They display the emotions
we have all felt from time to time; love, passion, hate. The sisterhood that is shown between
neighbors Hilda and Pearl is deeply human, respectful, trusting and something we all want in our lives. Ms. Berry's backdrop of the turbulent sixties comes to the forefront of the page time and again, enriching the humanity of those who lived through it, while opening the eyes of a new generation to what really occurred during the civil rights era. This novel is one that should be required reading in schools and is destined for the best-sellers list.
Bloody Sunday was an event in history that rocked the world as black people fought for the
right to vote in America on the fringes of the Jim Crow Era. Hilda and Frank lived together in a small New England town. The couple had been relatively happy for many years, but when Frank’s discontentment caused him to become mean and abusive, Hilda knew it was time to make a major change in her life. She yielded to the advances of a younger man who was head of a chapter of the Black Movement Coalition. Hilda was determined to be with him and after many sleepless nights, she came up with a solution – she would get rid of Frank. She enlisted the help of Pearl, her best friend and neighbor. Although Pearl battled her own demons, she vowed to stick by her friend…no matter what. Bonded by secrets, lies and murder, it’s hard to imagine two women will find the peace and happiness they so desperately seek...or is it?
When Hilda's love for Frank wanes and finally fades into dust, she becomes desperate to get rid of him, but she can think of only one way to escape the brute of a man. She devises a plan and with the help of her best friend Pearl, they pull off the impossible. In 1965, on the fringes of the Jim Crow days and the building tension of Bloody Sunday swirling around in the background, their world is turned upside down as secrets, lies and even murder fall out, threatening their very lives. Will these two women find the peace they so desperately seek?
Mary E., and her team welcome B. Berry to ArtSees Diner Radio, Author's Corner. Berry is celebrating the release of an outstanding new release, "Clothesline Blues."
In addition to CLOTHESLINE BLUES, B. Berry has written two murder mysteries, using Boston, Massachusetts as the backdrop. COLD CRAZY is a story of a young beautiful nurse who has been brutally and senselessly murdered. COLD SERIAL is about a serial killer who is terrorizing young women.
Although B. Berry prefers to write about murder, her first book, EVEN NUMBERS is a story of a young girl who was molested by her father and then ultimately raised by him. She would like to keep the subject of child molestation and child rape in the forefront of our minds.

Composer, multi-instrumentalist, engineer and producer, Robert Slap is a native of Detroit, Michigan. His music spans a wide spectrum of styles that include blues, rock, new age, jazz and film music. Born August 24, 1951, Slap grew up in the working class communities of Hamtramck and Roseville, learning to play trumpet at the age of 10. He played in his school concert and marching bands, and also performed with several drum and bugle corps. The classical training he received would benefit him later in life when pursuing a career as a music composer. By age 12, Robert’s interests were dominated by playing guitar (self taught) and tinkering with electronic equipment, radios, speakers, etc. Little did he know that these “hobbies” would determine the course of his life.His philosophy is, "Music is made to generate emotional response; life is a tapestry of ever-changing moods, colors, textures, and emotion. It reflects life and touches our souls' strings, pulling feelings out with passion into the open. It is the only medium through which I can truly express my innermost feelings."

What does “No Mean Girls” mean to you? I’ll bet you typically think of the OTHER person – the one who’s been or is being mean to you. Yet, in this series, I want you to think about YOURSELF as the mean girl. We cannot change other people’s behaviors; if we are to change the world, we have to change our own thoughts, habits, responses, and behaviors. And let me just say it here - I, too, struggle with my inner 'mean girl'. Tune in to hear more.
